Re: I can't find a stacked image of M27 in my Fits Lib. File

Brian,, on my last time out I did find and move that center line to the left. I took two stacked sequences from two different positions when moving left. There is still no image at all (except for a good star field) to be seen in the stacked Fits Lib. picture. But a better single picture image does ...

Re: Is there an error in the present SharpCap Manual?

Ok Brian, so I understand the material pertaining to collumation is near by, just scroll a bit more down. Over time you will see I'm really re-studying carefully that manual and I pray you will help me solve the horrible problem that is still the missing stacked pictures of M27. I'm now going to rep...

Is there an error in the present SharpCap Manual?

I'm reading for the umpteenth time the SharpCap Manual as I have made a couple of mistakes that I should have not made which proves my need for the review. It's a wonder how many things I could not work into my memory are now getting tucked away there. This is making me feel a little better realizin...

Re: I can't find a stacked image of M27 in my Fits Lib. File

Thanks Robin, I'm going to find that save icon you mentioned right now, because I think that will be needed. I'm also going to re-read the instruction manual front to back. I'm presuming the one I can get off of this HELP SITE is very up to date and might cover some things last years version, which ...

Re: I can't find a stacked image of M27 in my Fits Lib. File

Thank you Robin for your suggestion. I will take it into the Field on the next clear night and let you know what happens. Please keep an eye open for my reply as it might be MANY nights away. I have noticed in the past when stacking on M51 (like ten attempts) I was missing so much of it that I was n...

Re: too many SharpCap icons (symbols ?) showing up.

Thanks Robin. So it is credible that my problem was that the camera was not plugged in. Ok, I hope our correspondence will help some others avoid frustration.

Re: too many SharpCap icons (symbols ?) showing up.

My son's visit seems to have straightened things out. I say seems because I still think something is loose here. He got rid of the extra icons easily but he thinks somehow I did something that brought them onboard, I did not. Here is the really loose part: He demonstrated that I needed to have the c...
