Re: Live Stack: lot of Frames Ignored

Also, I note that you have gain set to auto. I'm not sure what value that might be - but for your camera folks often use gain of 350 or higher.

Re: Live Stack: lot of Frames Ignored

+1 on the frame rate issue. Also, try playing with the black level and digital gain settings.

Re: WiFi Camera Connection

While the ASIAir won't work, there are plenty of wifi options. See https://www.cloudynights.com/topic/5639 ... =%20heaven It is somewhat long and old, but will give you an idea of how to proceed.

Re: Plate Solving conundrum

It seems that Avast was the issue. I uninstalled it - what a pain - the "normal" uninstall apparently doesn't remove it all, and so one has to run a special program with windows in safe mode.

But plate solving is now back.

Thanks for all your work

Re: Ascom driver for Nikon & Canon cameras

Last questions.

Do you use in live view mode? I did not, so the image refreshes every x seconds.

Is live stacking enabled? I was only able to test inside. And weather Is uncooperative of late. Will become more so today - new scope being delivered!

Great stuff

Re: Ascom driver for Nikon & Canon cameras

Robin

quite good. I got it to work - one crash report was created and i sent along - but after that, no issue. I have a Canon T1i.


One point - my saved images are coming up in greyscale, although the "live" image in SC is in color. What to do ?

Re: Dealing with light pollution

The CCD version cuts off the IR end of the spectrum at 700 nm, the non-CCD goes much farther. So you'll capture more energy, especially from galaxies. If you are doing EEA type imaging, you'll not need much more than 20 minutes integration to get acceptable images. See https://www.cloudynights.com/g...
