Re: SharpCap 3.3 Beta Now Available

Further to the above - I uninstalled both the 32 & 64 bit versions. Installed the latest version from fresh and it behaved the same. Uninstalled that and reinstalled 3.3.6944 (works OK) and then updated to the new version and got the same behaviour. This was the same for both machines (Win7 and ...

I've installed the x64 version too and get the same behavior.

Re: SharpCap 3.3 Beta Now Available

Ah, right. I hadn't installed the previous version on that machine. So now both machines are behaving the same (just the splash screen) but at least the Win7 one tells me that it's stopped working. The Debug button reports an unhandled .NET exception [9592] and that there's no just in time debugger ...

Re: SharpCap 3.3 Beta Now Available

Not having much luck with this one. Using the 32 bit version - On my Win10 machine it installed but when I try to run it, I just see the splash screen which goes away at about the normal time and that's it. On my Win7 x64 machine, it wouldn't install. Log attached. SharpCap_3.3_20201127083548.log My...

Re: QHY5L-llM

I had a similar issue with a QHY5 and found that the Gamma setting had changed. Not sure how as I never touch it, but it would pay to check.

Re: SharpCap 3.3 Beta Now Available

I can only speak for myself, but it's more a case of being forewarned that something is required.

If I knew that it needed a newer version of the .NET framework I'd be able to manage the situation accordingly.
At least the QHY SDK/Driver hopscotch seems to have eased now.

Re: SharpCap 3.3 Beta Now Available

When you make a new release, could you make a note of any external things that Sharpcap needs and if they need updating from the previous version please ? eg. The Microsoft .NET thingy. I've been caught by this a couple of times when I've gone out to the telescope clutching my USB stick with a shiny...

Advanced Spiral

Would it be possible to enhance the functionality of the spiral search ? Plate solving is fine for DSO's, star fields, etc but falls down for finding planets where you are likely to be imaging with a small sensor at long focal lengths. A few things come to mind. 1) How is the step size of the spiral...

Re: Sync buton, after manual alignment.

You can do the second sync from within your planetarium program. At least, you can with CdC and I'm sure you can with others. Do the Plate Solve, Slew and Sync from within SharpCap. Center the object and then do a Sync in CdC. It asks if you are pointed to the object and then takes your word for it....
