Share your sequencer steps and tips to give me ideas.

I'm closing in on having a sequence to fully start up and shut down but I don't trust it yet. I'm using full moon nights to experiment with the sequencer and one day soon might be willing to trust it to fully automate everything. Below isn't my most complicated sequence but it's my simple workhorse ...

Re: 3.3.7146 sequencer error

I downloaded 3.3.7.190 earlier today so I'm up to date. I see the start and end in the focuser offset position but I can't flip or change them. The start offset position will only go negative and the end will only go to a positive number. The arrow is blanked out to move the numbers the other way so...

Backlash by SC not turning off

version 3.3.7.190 I've suspected this was a bug in the past but tonight I confirmed it. I was experimenting with figuring out backlash. I turned compensation to "none" in the SC menu and ran the multi star auto focus in and out several times and my curves were dead on. To get it to really ...

Re: Live view delay

Have you adjusted the memory sliders?

Go to File>Sharpcap settings>memory and slide the Live stack and display slider all the way up. When/If you ever switch to planets and need a fast frame rate slide the other one up in the same menu.

Explanation of sequencer steps

Question about dithering with the sequencer that does not make sense to me ... How does the "Dither ever <dither interval> seconds" work? If the sequencer goes one step at a time from top to bottom it seems like this one would need to run simultaneously with the "capture frames" ...

Re: 3.3.7146 sequencer error

Two more things to add that I noticed during this sequence.... 1-I ran the "autofocus offset" step and it moves outwards in the positive direction. I couldn't find a way to change this. From what I read you always want to autofocus with the draw tube moving inwards. Is there an option to c...

Re: 3.3.7146 sequencer error

Attached are the sequences I tried to load. To clarify SC crashed about six or eight times last night due to three different causes. 1- Loading the attached files into the sequencer. These were the only two files I had to load so I don't know if one built differently might have worked. 2- When I wou...

Re: 3.3.7146 sequencer error

I also got this twice. Both times It got to the autofocus section of the sequence. Autofocus worked when the camera was in live mode. I had to make step 1 "put into still mode" or the sequencer would crash if I was in the middle of a looping frame when the sequence started. To work around ...

3.3.7146 sequencer error

I saved a sequence that I built during the daylight and tried to load it back in to run after dark. SC crashed every time after loading it.
