Re: ZWO ASI533MC_Pro and Sensor analysis problems

like you, I had similar trouble. See this post :-
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2202

I finally got it to work with a starting exposure of 3.2ms - try something similar and see if it works.

Regards

Re: Sharpcap freezes during sensor linearity part of sensor analysis

Finally got it to work @ 3.2ms starting exposure - I re-ran the 16 bit RAW as well, so now I've got a 'matched' set.

thanks for your help

Re: Sharpcap freezes during sensor linearity part of sensor analysis

Robin Thanks for the quick reply. I'll try your suggestion today. Of course, I've got the 16 bit working so I was able to use that last night to get some test images. Not quite got my head around One Shot Colour for deep sky yet - especially getting the image stretched while live stacking Regards Neil

Sharpcap freezes during sensor linearity part of sensor analysis

I managed to get the sensor analysis done for 16 bit RAW on my ZWO ASI%33MC-Pro - it was a bit of an ordeal as it seems to be very sensitive to the initial exposure and Sharpcap would sometime freeze during bit depth, sometimes while doing the e/ADU test and sometimes later in the process, but I got...

A couple more craters from earlier thi smonth

I'm beginning to like the latest imaging setup - either that or my processing is getting better - some of my sharpest images yet. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49239928527_0a57f5aea7.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49239234493_053542937c.jpg Now, if only we can some clear skies - I'll ...

The Moon, w/c 3rd December

At last - a couple of clearish evenings - dodging a bit of cloud with good transparency but average seeing. 'First light' with this setup. I usually do Lunar with my C11, but I've mothballed that this winter as there are no planets in view given my horizons. so I'm trying some Lunar work with my 127...

Re: Live Stack Mosaic Horse and Flame

Nice work, and I love the tip about putting Alnitak (or bright star in any field) right in the centre of the frame - would solve similar probs with my ASI1600.

M31, M52 and Bubble

Well, there were a few clear nights in September and October M31 - 80mm Apo, ASI 1600MM-Cool, ZWO LRGB - ~256 frames @ 8secs per frame for each filter ( some frames excluding on quality grounds) https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48973640881_f25a1bfbed_z.jpg M31_17_09_2019_LRGB_Master_CT_TGV_UM_ABE...

Out of adversity.....

Well. I decided to reconfigure my observatory - mothballing the C11 for a while - planets are well below my tree line now and recabling to allow me to concentrate on DSO imaging with the 127mm and 80mm Ascension Apos. While doing this I managed to mis-wire the power supply and subsequently fried the...
