Re: New Feature : SharpSolve - SharpCap's new built-in plate solver

Corner case - planetary imaging suggestion. I have a 2415mm Dall Kirkham reflector and when I use my ASI678MC (2mu) camera the platesolve has a lot of misses but with my ASI2600 (3.76mu) it works well. In the description notes on the tool it mentions that for >2000mm scopes the use of an APS-C level...

Live Planetary Stacking

Hi Robin, I tested the Live Planetary Stacking and had some great results with it - many thanks for the feature. There was a problem when resizing the stacked ROI area in the tool - blew up Sharpcap and it said it would send a report back to the SC mothership. That repeated a few times so I hope you...

Quad Index was empty errors with plate solving after goto

I was doing some gotos last night and nearly all my goto plate solves did not work. I kept getting an error like Quad index was empty so I am wondering if the internal platesolve DB was empty.

Re: Latest version blows the compter up

Thanks Robin, per your suggestions:- - am revisiting the power supply as there seems to be a few errors in the Windows logs around that. - am checking the Prolific driver with the iOptron Commander but disabled the mount in Settings and still had the issue. I thought it may be the iOptron Commander ...

Sharpcap goto on iOptron with strain wave HAE43

Hi, I have one these new strain wave iOptron mounts and I have an issue with Sharpcap gotos. The issue is this - from Sharpcap I select Tools Goto and then Deneb. The mount starts up and moves but it is doesn't point to Deneb - more like Vega. If I go to the iOptron hand controller and key in Deneb ...
