Re: Function for Ha solar best focus...?

Hallo Robin,

Indeed I misused the black level control :oops:

Is it so that I don't need the "black level control" (min setting 0 or 2) for focusing on the sun, just turn on the telescope focuser until I have a green histogram?

Regards,

Re: Function for Ha solar best focus...?

Hallo Robin, A time ago I asked a question about the focus tool: (contrast edge detection). There is something that I don't understand namely, the relation between the "black level and the telescope focuser position". When I look in the SharpCap manual and I take an example as described under 14.5 (...

Re: Function for Ha solar best focus...?

Thanks Robin for the quick answer.
Most of my webpage (Sun, Moon and Timelapse) are recorded with SharpCap 3 and 3.1, and I love the way it works :D

Re: Where is the gamma button?

I saw the answer to my question with the above help, it's a shame that the button is gone.

Are there forum members who have influence at ZWO, and ask them to replace the "gamma button" …gamma is indeed very good to pop up the detail on Solar Ha imaging.

Thanks all for the information.

With a camera from the program as example for deepsky or for planets than there is a gamma button … In the past, there was...
