Re: Drastic drop in FPS

I solved my usb issues by using a smaller ROI and also setting my max frame rate to 120fps in order to avoid overwhelming my usb. Last night I was getting 110 fps with the new settings while imaging Saturn. Thanks for the help.

Drastic drop in FPS

I'm having trouble understanding what is going on with my frame rate when using Sharpcap3.2 and my asi224mc while planetary imaging. I'm hoping some of the pros on this forum can explain what's going on and if I need to do anything different. I'm using an exposure time of ~2.2ms and a ROI of 640x480...

Calibration Frames?

When using calibration frames while livestacking and saving individual frames for post processing later does Sharpcap apply the calibration frames to the individual raw frames that are being saved? If this is the case, would I want to use dark and flat frames when stacking the calibrated individual ...

Re: Image capture window is white.

Hey Robin I went to the ZWO site to download the latest driver. I already had the latest version but I reloaded it anyway. It is still acting a little wonky but when I hit the livestack button it seems to clear up. It also did not like when I tried to use the brain function to set exposure and gain....

Saving live stack

I have been using Sharpcap 3.0 for " Live Viewing" and saving my stacks with the save as viewed option. I want to start post processing my frames. If I use the FWHM filter to eliminate bad frames, would using the save as raw16 stack fits option be a good alternative to loading my individual subs to ...

Re: HOWTO Debayer Captured Images

Thank you so much!!! This is exactly what I was looking for. I have been pulling my hair out trying to get DSS to stack my raw8 files. At least now I know I wasn't doing it wrong.
