Re: Mini-Histogram Stretch Button

[thinking out loud a bit more based on the last couple EAA sessions where I spent a lot of time making final R-G-B color adjustments] The ±0.1 dB color adjustment seems to be the maximum allowable late in a stack with higher histogram stretch settings. That is, even a 0.1 dB adjustment can make an ...

Re: Mini-Histogram Stretch Button

I've been paying more attention to the mini-histogram the last couple of nights (actually the first clear nights in three weeks). Something that I was not regularly doing until I started using the ±0.1dB changes in the live stack histogram by clicking on the slider and using the up-down arrow keys. ...

Re: Mini-Histogram Stretch Button

With all this discussion so far I'm still not sure if the Mini-Histogram can be a final adjustment measurement tool. I've reached my "level of detail" limit visually using the laptop image and Live Stack Histogram. That is, I'm not able to discern which final 0.1dB R-G-B adjustments best a...

Re: Mini-Histogram Stretch Button

When doing DSO live stacking with an OSC camera and using the Live Stack Histogram it can be difficult to see the fine adjustments to RGB, especially when using the ±0.1dB changes. With Lock Stretch ON the Mini-Histogram RGB curves can provide a better visual for fine adjustments but it's a fairly ...

Re: Deep Sky Image Annotation (Not Responding)

Robin, Thank you for the reply. I'm attaching a screen snip of the Annotation Catalogs. It looks like I need to delete the HyperLeda18 and PGC-Mag18 files as they must really consume processing. Image annotation did take a few seconds to come up when using it with narrower fields but I did not think...

Deep Sky Image Annotation (Not Responding)

The last two times I've used SharpCap it was with a 50mm DSLR lens, so very wide field. Last night was with 4.1.11754 and the prior session was with 4.1.11648. I'm running a Windows 10 laptop and have not made any configuration changes to my Deep Sky catalogs. I'm attaching two logs from last night....

Temperature display for non-cooled cameras

Referring to SC 4.1, the temperature display under Camera Controls for non-cooled cameras is always greyed out. This makes it quite dim and hard to read during the day. I use DIY TEC's to cool my non-cooled cameras during the day to take flats that are a closer match to typical night time temperatur...

Re: Can a flat be edited?

Robin, Thank you for the explanation. It sounds like FITS Liberator should be able to make the changes you suggest. I'm sure there is an obvious change in values just outside the properly illuminated image circle. And a combination of being more selective with an ROI, combined with editing the FITS ...

Can a flat be edited?

I've been experimenting with what we have coined Ultra Fast (UF) EAA and here is the topic on CN. https://www.cloudynights.com/topic/892869-experiment-with-ultra-fast-untracked-eaa/ What I've experienced so far when taking a flat in SharpCap 4.1 is the outer area of the frame, which is likely black ...
