Re: IC5070 Pelican Nebula in Hubble (SHO) Palette

Pretty! I too like the version with stars, not just because it has stars, but because of the greater apparent contrast that really makes the colors pop. Although some may say you went to far in that space is not "black," the starless version looks washed out and foggy in comparison to me.

Re: Histogram and Why?

Thank you Dave! I asked another person the same question - to be clear, adjusting the histogram in the live stacking mode does not impact the actual saved image, correct? It certainly can impact the actual saved image. Directly from the SharpCap user manual: The Save button has 4 sub options: · Sav...

Re: Focus question/suggestion

I usually focus on a nearby star first. Much more straightforward than trying to focus on a planet.

Re: Dropped frames ASI 294MC Pro

Sure, feel free to reference my name and RMA # (11894). Highpoint was very helpful.

No one ever identified what caused the issue or what they did to fix it.

Re: Dropped frames ASI 294MC Pro

Hi Mark, Sorry to hear you're having the exact same issue. I ended up working with the vendor I purchased the camera through, Highpoint Scientific, to send the camera back to ZWO for repair under warranty. Highpoint Scientific handled all the shipping back and forth to China. It took about 8 weeks f...

I must admit to liking the idea of being able to rename the live stack while it is in progress as I frequently forget to update it first, so I'm happy to try to replace it when I get some time to focus on it.

Cheers,
Exactly! :)

Update or allow user control of camera settings written to file

I don't want to make a big deal of this, but I feel like I have to wade through too many lines in the saved camera settings text file to find what I am looking for. Would there be a way to not include some of the superfluous settings, or allow more user control over what settings are written to this...

Re: Darks and the "Flip" setting

Yes, it does matter. But I bet you would rather have Robin confirm that than me!
