Re: Undo last 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: No alignment found!

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

With the filter on and binning at 2 it did not stack.
