Re: SharpCap 64-bit version now available for testing.

Fantastic! I can't wait to try out these improvements!

Regarding this: "Stronger/Weaker auto-stretch when control/shift clicking the button" -- can you explain a bit more about how this works? Thanks.

Re: SharpCap 64-bit version now available for testing.

I used this version last night with my ZWO1600MC-Cool, and had no issues during live stacking. Thanks for the great effort which allows me to use all the great features of live stacking with no crashes due to "out of memory" errors.

Re: Two Monitor View: add small preview window to main monitor?

As a work-around, here's what I currently do for public outreach: Since I already had two monitors, I use an HDMI splitter to connect both external monitors to my laptop's single HDMI-out port. Then when I toggle "Two Monitor View" on, the preview/camera image window displays on both external monito...

Re: Drop Frames ASI1600MMCool

I also experienced dropped frames with my ASI1600MC-C on my Win 10 64-bit laptop, using the 64-bit beta version 3.2.5847. From the log: "Fetching still frame from ZWO camera failed with ExpFailed, exposure is 1000, timeout is 6100" This is with all USB power saving options disabled and Turbo USB set...

Re: Live Stack and problems applying dark frames

For ZWO cameras, Brightness does indeed equal "Offset".

Re: Crashing during live stacking

I've had issues with dropped frames in the past, but not with the 3.2 Beta builds so far.

Re: Crashing during live stacking

I’d really prefer not to Bin my 1600, since I like to preserve the full resolution so I can zoom in to see more detail. One of the main reasons I like the 1600 camera is for its resolution. If I just avoid using the Enhancement tab (keep Noise Reduction and Sharpening turned off) would that prevent ...
