Camera types

Hi, does Sharpcap recognise Canon cameras? When I connect my Canon 800d Sharpcap does not recognise it, is there a setting for it? I know Sharpcap recognises many other makes.

Re: Sigma setting

Thanks Chris I will change that. It does seem strange that the bar at the top of the page says ‘sigma’ but that word does not appear on the page you pointed out. Just one more question, to get the pro licence is it a monthly or yearly payment and how much is it?

Sigma setting

Hi, I do not have the pro version of Sharpcap but whilst trying to plate solve, the system advised me to change the setting for Sigma in the Sharpcap settings but for the life of me I cannot find any Sigma settings. Do I need the pro version before these settings show?

Hi Robin, my setting was bulb. I uninstalled the version I had and reinstalled the software again. I have a new laptop so maybe there was a fault with the installation. I will try again this afternoon.

Star alignment

Hi I have been watching a few videos regarding the above and in them, they used Sharpcap, there was a screen that had a reticule so the stars could be well and truly centred. I cannot find that screen, can anyone help please.

Re: Focusers

Hello all, I have downloaded Ascom driver 6.4 but when I open it there is a Miriad of headings, so which one do I need to click on to ensure the focuser, which I have not yet purchased, works correctly?
