Re: Live stack poor frames

Lee

Have a good read of https://docs.sharpcap.co.uk/3.2/#Live%20Stacking particularly FWHM tab for filtering poor frames (think of thin cloud) and Stacking tab for Sigma Clipped Stacking (to filter out airplane trails).

Don

Perhaps you have another machine to test the camera/cable? Also try another (short) cable to see if the problem persists.

Robin What happens if you run a camera only test (no other USB devices connected) using the manufacturer supplied cable with camera plugged directly into a laptop port? I think you mentioned that you had USB Suspend disabled? Please post: USBtreeView full report Msinfo export (zip this up) Dave

Re: Brightness and White Balance Adjustments after Smart Histogram Brain

Mark I don't autoguide so it may not be possible. Don't be in a hurry to go down that route - look at the basics first. I have a Celestron AVX mount, 2nd hand, cost me £500 (£800 new).
