.txt file information

Robin

In the.txt file that accompanies an image, there's a data field that gives Total Exposure(s). What is this?

In a recent image, the file indicated 4 second exposure, 14 stacked frames, and Total Exposure(s) of 5.993

Re: Dark Capture Problem

Robin: I just looked through this file, and found it might not be related to the darks at all, but to a [problem that happened when I unplugged the ASCOM connection for the mount, but did not remove it from the hardware configuration.

Dark Capture Problem

Robin: I'm having some trouble capturing darks. When I attempt to capture them the system hangs up part way through the collection of the images. It simply freezes, and I need to launch Task Manager to shut it down. There seems to be no repeatable instance of how far SC gets before it freezes - some...

Re: use polar align feature with DSLR or on a budget?

In this hobby, cheap is a relative term! Best deal I know of for you might be too buy only the camera, controller and nosepiece from the revolution imager kit camera.

I'm using an older, notoriously slow Dell Latitude d430 running 64 bit windows 7 pro. The computer controls the camera, an ASCOM mount and an ASCOM focuser thr...

Re: Rising Tech cameras -- same as Altair?

Robin - I have one of these RT cameras. Since you may be getting some more questions on these cameras (they appear to be popular in Australia of late) - here's some information. While they use the same sensor as one of the Altair cameras, they are not the same as the Altair. Or, at least I can repor...
