Live Stacks March 19 & 20 2019

Had long night on the 19th and 20th imaging until 5 AM. This kinda turned into a mini Messier marathon ending with M16 just getting high enough to capture early in the morning. This was challenging with the bright moon but with a little tweaking the final images in Photoshop they turned out OK. Equi...

Re: Stack - Histogram - Color curves

Red and blue sliders in the image control section on the right hand side will change the signal at the camera source and thus effect the large histogram in live stacking. The red green and blue vertical sliders in the live stack histogram window are post processing controls. You'll see the effect of...

Re: Scope Settings Feature

Can't answer for Robin but the way I get around this, so I don't totally wreck my framing. I Set the slew rates to very low. In the case of my CEM60 2x. Since the slew rate is so low it's very easy to go back if the current orientation isn't moving the mount in the direction I intended.

Re: Live Stack with Flat Frame Bug?

You can but once you s...

Re: How do I set black level to a specific value

Black level, offset and in the case of ZWO Brightness is the same setting. When you click apply in the "Brain" the suggested black level is applied to brightness setting in the ZWO camera control panel of SharpCap.
