ADC tool goes nuts if not using full area of sensor. Version 3.3.6882.0 32 bit, Win10 x64, ASI1600MC. Capturing in RAW16. It works fine if the using at the full resolution of the sensor but if I select a smaller capture area (eg. 1024 x 768) it goes into a death spiral (so I couldn't generate a cras...

Re: Upgrading QHY 174 GPS Camera Firmware

Could someone meter the connections between the 0.1" Blaster header and the 0.05" header that plugs into the QHY boards please ? I'll have to make something up and would rather not make any assumptions and find out the hard way that I guessed incorrectly. No answer from QHY. Of course, if someone wa...

Multi config, command line and platesolving

Would it be possible to add the ability to save configurations and include FoV information that could be passed to the plate solver ? Could such configurations be selected by a command line switch ? The reason is that I have several setups, some that have several, quite different field of views. At ...

Re: Troubleshooting Polar Alignment

It looks to me like your exposure is too long, making the background level too high.
My settings for a Polemaster in Auckland suburbs are Exp=150ms, Gain=70.
