Re: live stack image vs saved as seen

Robin i will double check these settings of the two options to insure i am in sync with your explanation. I may be having a brain skip as to what happens when i make adjustments with these two histograms and what happens when i then save with either of these two options. I need another viewing sessi...

Re: ASI 290 mini mono and SC problems

Robin

Other way around ...so the results bothered me too

I may not have done the “test” correctly though

Don’t fret about this ...I will work on 2s exposures and high gain to start with and see where the this goes

Thx

Re: ASI 290 mini mono and SC problems

Robin

If I follow you on sensitivity and am doing this properly the 290 needed exposure is 9.9ms and the 224 is 2.0ms .This gets the histogram for both to 50%

I will need your coaching to tell me how these two exposure settings tell me what to do with other SharpCap settings

Thx
