Re: Noise Reduction in Deep Sky Images

Wow, thank you for this find, Dave. This does a much better job than wavelet denoise in GIMP (or at least the way I have been using it).

Re: Lunar imaging with filters

Re: Added Info in CameraSettings.txt

Yes, putting the custom entry capability on the right side as a separate control panel seems to me to be a good choice. It would be readily accessible and also could be minimized if not needed at any given time. Thank you for considering this.

Re: Added Info in CameraSettings.txt

I second this suggestion from about a year ago. One thing I would like automatically added would be any enhancements and their respective settings used from the Live Stacking enhancement tab.

The ZWO camera is so much easier to use with SharpCap -- no more going through separate obtuse menu settings outside of SharpCap to set exposure and gain, much wider field of view making it e...
