Re: Dithering Costs a Whole Frame

Excellent!! I'll download it and give it a try as soon as we get some clear skies and let you know if I find anything unexpected.

Dithering Costs a Whole Frame

Hi Robin, I know that this has been discussed in several different areas but hadn't found it officially logged as a bug. To me it feels more like a bug than a new feature request. For everyone else's benefit, the "issue" is that each time SharpCap performs a dither (through PHD2), it doesn't pause t...

Re: PhD2 Dithering Control ETA?

+1 Hi Robin, I'd just like to add my support for this request. It's frustrating to lose a whole light frame (often 2+ minutes of exposure time) when the dithering process only takes a few seconds. This becomes very costly (25% lost frames) if I want to dither every fourth frame over a 3-4 hour perio...

Stacking Multiple Stacks?

Does stacking multiple stacks yield the same result as creating one stack of the total number of frames? For example, suppose that I create a live stack of 100 frames tonight and save as a 16-bit FITS file one evening, then create a live stack of 200 frames of the same image on another night. If I t...

Re: Plate solve questions

I'll piggy-back on this thread. I just tried to use the Plate Solving tool last night and kept getting the error: "Plate solve failed - only - 1 stars found. Maybe too few? Try reducing the 'sigma' value in the SharpCap settings....". It was initially set to a value of 50 and I tried lowering the va...

Astrotortilla Plate Solving Configuration - Can't find Solve-Field

I want to use the Plate Solving function of SharpCap and just successfully installed Astrotortilla for plate solving (into the default installation location) and it runs when invoked. My next step was to open SharpCap to configure it for plate solving. I opened the SharpCap Settings area and the "Pl...
