Re: Fast exposure / fps capture over gigabit possible?

It's possible to use gigabit Ethernet with with a USB to Ethernet adapter but gigabit Ethernet has no where near the data transmission capacity to accomplish high speed imaging. Gigabit Ethernet maximum through put using TCP/IP without jumbo frames is about 120 MB/sec. The USB 3 through put is 640 M...

Re: No stacking with 120sec exposure and guiding

If you're getting the images to stack at a shorter exposure go to the alignment tab and check how many stars are detected. Detecting too many stars is just as bad as not detecting enough. Too many stars and the alignment doesn't calculate. If you get alignment with your current settings at shorter e...

Re: No stacking with 120sec exposure and guiding

Hi bemo47 Check out https://docs.sharpcap.co.uk/3.2/#Live%20Stacking see the alignment tab section. The settings I use that usually always work for me. Please note these settings are provided as a starting point and you'll need to adjust for your camera and equipment. Noise reduction 1 or higher min...

Re: Live Stack with Flat Frame Bug?

Hi Robin,

As I post this I'm capturing some live stacks on NSN. Looks like making new darks in v6194 along with new flat in v6194 was the secret sauce. This seems to have fixed the issue. I'll keep you posted if i encounter any other issues! Thanks for your assistance.

I can test this the next time I have clear skies. I'll use v6128 to make a flat then live stack an object saving the raw frames. Then use the raw ...

Re: Live Stack with Flat Frame Bug?

Reporting back findings. I see you made a change in v6185 but since then you published v6194. I'm assuming the 6185 change was present in the latest version also? I've completed testing flats with live stacking in 3.2.6194 and flats are not applying correctly in this build. I generally use the 64 bi...
