Re: Object Name cannot be added/changed once stack has started

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!

Re: Asteroid (23129)

Nice shot of 253. Looks like you got a satellite trail, too. Are you using sigma stacking?

Re: Vignetting is horrible

I have a 1-1/4 inch T adapter and visual back on my 8" Celestron SCT and with proper flats and darks, it completely addresses vignetting.

Re: Questions about Brain and when and when not to use it?

Don In the 2nd link, the FITS Liberator shows 'flip image' checked. I think that is the default. Maybe the other software is not flipping or you have flip unchecked? Maybe post a side-by-side comparison to help work out what is a happening. Dave No, it was something even more basic. The FITS Libera...

Re: Questions about Brain and when and when not to use it?

Don I don't know if I will gain/lose anything by doing that compared to the png files I have now I would do a controlled test with FITS & PNG and scrutinise the results before committing time & effort to building the dark library. Dave Thanks Dave. I see Robin has already answered this ques...

Not using the same format introduces unneeded complexity, especially when troubleshooting. How about if you are only livestacking within SharpCap for EAA viewing and then saving any...

Re: Questions about Brain and when and when not to use it?

Hi Tim, Yeah, I didn't stretch it since I didn't know how much of a stretch you were talking about. I figured you could download it and stretch it however much you want. Uploading this file made me realize that all my darks are .png files rather than .fts files. Does this make a difference if I am o...
