Live Stacks vs The Moon April 15 & 16 2019

Had our best skies of 2019 in northeast Georgia, USA. Started before sunset grabbing shots of the Moon and ending just before 6 AM the next morning on M20 as it rose high enough for me to image. Always a challenge to get good shots when you have an almost full moon up most of the night. I attempt to...

Feature Tracking (Expirmental)

I've been playing around with Feature Tracking and hadn't had much success. Finally got it working tracking the moon without the system constantly over compensating. Found settings that worked for my FL / image scale that kept the moon centered on screen. If / when feature tracking becomes none expe...

Re: Frame time increments but no image

There have been some significant changes for QHY cameras as their drivers and SDK have been updated. These updates seem to have introduced several issues for QHY gear and SharpCap. Make sure you have the latest build of SC as there are updates that address several QHY reported issues.

Re: Mount connection and platesolve issue

Quickest way to the log. Click help at top of SharpCap screen and select "Show Log". At the right bottom of this window is "Copy To Clipboard" button. Once copied past into a blank text file and attach this text file to your post.

Re: Brain giving strange results

Also have a look at your alignment tab in Live Stacking. See how many stars are being detected. If not enough stars try increasing the digital gain. Normally Live Stack only needs 10 stars to align frames for stacking. I'd keep increasing the digital gain until enough stars are detected to align and...

Re: ? best way to get SharpCap to update with newest version ?

Once installed you'll have 3.1.5220 and the latest version, as of this post 3.2.5...
