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..,

Re: Automated LRGB Sequence Capture

I used the script for the first time last night & it worked perfectly out-of-the-box although I did notice a couple of places to make improvements, which I have now done. One small thing was the message given when either the Camera or FilterWheel or both were not connected, it was a bit ambiguous so...
