Re: Undo last stack

Yes it would. Sometime a satellite or plane goes through the frame during live stacking. "Undo Stack" !

Re: Binning and stacking

On the right column of Sharpcap there is "Binning" at the top and there is "Mono Bin" at the bottom. What's the difference here? Where can I learn more about how to use Mono Bin and the adjustments underneath it?

Re: No alignment found!

Thank you for your mature and informed response Robin. I will aim for fewer stars next time. Did not know SC likes 50-100 stars.

Re: Flat Frames with ZWO ASI294MC

If you already had dark frames captured and added then you can't capture flats.

Re: No alignment found!

I'm not watching videos and I don't appreciate your humor.

Re: No alignment found!

I've also found (and I'm not alone in this observation) that if I do anything else on my observatory laptop (surf the net, etc) I get even more ignored frames.

Re: No alignment found!

I can't for the life of me figure out why I'm getting randomly ignored frames. No clouds, it just happens here and there. "No alignment found" yet I've got hundreds of stars and plenty of frames that are stacking.

Re: Binning and stacking

Re: Binning and stacking

Does the brightness level affect the live stack feature... stacking vs unstacking frames ?

Re: Binning and stacking

I've been doing 30s subs, live narrowband EAA (ha, oii, and sulfur) for over a year with an Ultrastar as well as Lodestar cameras and Starlight Live software. With an on the fly dark subtraction. With a 71mm f6 doublet. In a city. Binning at 2 helps with integration. Waiting to hear from Robin.... t...
