Re: Dealing with light pollution

I think a light pollution filter is your first need. I use an Astronomik CLS ( the non ccd one). Also, I'd suggest you go over to the cloudy nights EAA page https://www.cloudynights.com/forum/73-eaa-observation-and-equipment/ and search for unofficial sharpcap users guide. I assume you've already lo...

Re: Gradient Removal

Robin: I thought you might be interested in knowing of a post that was made today over on Cloudy Nights, by Kyle Goodwin He says: As the developer of AstroLive USB I can say that SharpCap is the way to go. I stopped developing and selling AstroLive USB two years ago, so it's quite out of date now. I...

Re: Install of .5132 fails

Eureka ! You found it . I did upgrade the PC from windows home to windows pro, perhaps that was the root of the problem. FYI, I had to first uninstall 3.1.5115 - the earlier version didn't like trying to overwrite the old one. SO, it cancelled out the install, claiming I cancelled it, which I didn't...

Attempts to send to you by PM failed - I was unable to put the file into the message.

Re: Install of .5132 fails

Robin

These do not work. They say something like "these onl;y work on installed applications". But when I go to install a new vesion, it fails to execute the postinstall.msi program - even though it can find it. It says it is the wrong one.

.5115 still works.

Re: Install of .5132 fails

Robin: I uninstalled version 5115 and restarted the computer. I extracted the zip file you sent me to a known location (does it need to go some place special ?). When I attempted to install the latest version, it got hung up again, so I pointed the installation app to the recently unzipped file. It ...

Re: Install of .5132 fails

Robin: More on the failed install. I've tried the most recent new ones, and they did not install. Ended with the same message. When I tried to browse to the postinstall.msi, it said that was the wrong one - or some such warning. I can install and run .5115. I can uninstall .5115 But when I try to re...

Re: Install of .5132 fails

FWIW, I have been running and installing 3.1.5115 from the USB drive w/o any issues such as this recent one.

Lastly, concerning the timing issue, i'm not using a frame grabber camera, but rather a ZWO ASI294.
