Re: Automated LRGB Sequence Capture

Hello I know little about SharpCap and less about scripting but I have modified this useful script in two ways; first to use five filter positions (Ha in position 5) and secondly to show exposure times as seconds or milliseconds (the earlier version seemed to not quite get this right). Be gentle wi...

Re: HOWTO Debayer Captured Images

Hi Robin, while allowing people the choice pre capture, do you think most people will choose compression for space saving & then be in a position of trying to decompress later? Just wondering if a separate decompressing app or option can be of benefit post capture to allow files to be processed in f...

Re: HOWTO Debayer Captured Images

- the question is what the right choice is here? Always uncompressed? An option? cheers, Robin Not really sure I would want masses of uncompressed .tif files on my system or possibly causing a bottleneck somewhere. Perhaps an accompanying app to decompress the files, similar to the workaround. This...

Re: HOWTO Debayer Captured Images

Hi Kirk, a neat workaround! Well thought out :) SharpCap writes TIFF format using the OpenCV library and it looks like it is compressing the TIFF file (good) but in a format that PIPP doesn't understand (bad...). It looks like there may be a semi documented way of avoiding the compression - https:/...

Re: HOWTO Debayer Captured Images

Thanks for posting this Kirk. The files were captured in SharpCap v3.1.5219.0 Kirk - do you have the Sharpcap capture settings file to post? Did the files you put into PIPP come straight from Sharpcap or via some other software? Robin - any thoughts on the "TIFF file has unsupported compression". D...

Re: HOWTO Debayer Captured Images

Thought I'd share my recent experience. Last night/this morning I set my ASI224MC up as an All-Sky_Cam using the supplied 150deg 2.1mm f2 lens & after some fiddling around getting the correct exposure/gain combo I set it going capturing frames for a Star Trail at 45s & saving as RAW16 .tif files. Al...

Interrogate Device i.e. ASCOM

Hi,
is there a way to grab info from a connected device i.e. ASCOM connected FilterWheel?

If I wanted to list the filters and their positions a user has added in the config of the device.

Regards..,

Kirk
