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

Thanks Robin. I will forward this to my son who helps me a LOT on computer stuff and see if he encourages me to try this before his next planned visit about 2 weeks from now. Also, I should have mentioned in my first email that all SharpCap icons are saying SharpCap 3.2, the latest version. The numb...

too many SharpCap icons (symbols ?) showing up.

When I first turn on my computer I see I have three SharpCap 3 icons (symbols ?). Any one of them will get things started but none of them allow me to call up my only camera, a ZWO ASI 178C. It is now missing from the listing for what ever cameras I might use. How ever I can still call up the SharpC...

Re: Camera or Pro License Problem??

Dave thanks for the attention you have put into my problem. Went out about a week ago and things worked as they should. However the artifact (I can't call it a hot pixel) shows up as before. But it is fainter and looks scattered as it did in its early Life. Looking at pictures with and without dark ...

Re: Camera or Pro License Problem??

PS Dave: I have put a paper reminder on my scope to click on HIGHLIGHT DETECTED STARS. Not only if I have trouble stacking m-44 (it too has a good number of stars) but if I find SharpCap will stack one star, like it did several knights ago, or even more unbelievable no stars at all. If it stacks wit...

Re: Camera or Pro License Problem??

Dave, I just finished running that 4 step process you recommended yesterday. I got the same results as I did last night. The picture with out the dark frame used had at least a thousand or two pixels showing up all over the screen. But what disappoints me is the picture taken with the dark frame had...

Re: Camera or Pro License Problem??

Hello Dave. I stayed up very late last night going through the instructions you gave me before this last one. I went though all the steps 3 times before I made any conclusions. But first let me say that the Align Frame box was first seen as CHECKED on. It comes back on from who it was used the last ...

Re: Camera or Pro License Problem??

Yes, now several people have mentioned to be sure the ALIGN FRAME box is checked. I think it has been but I will thoroughly make sure that it is. I apprieciate what I think ...

Re: Camera or Pro License Problem??

Dave, the four questions; How to run the snipping tool, I will get experience here with my son this Saturday about using that. Show live stack settings on a forums post, I thought the "camera settings" that I sent in were that. Do you mean for me to include a screen shot of some sort? Coul...

Re: Camera or Pro License Problem??

Robin, as I just mentioned to BlackWikkett I will check with clear eyes that Align Frames box being checked ON. I have been using M-44, BeeHive Starcluster for a couple of months because it does have so many stars that it easily supplies the required three if not more than fifteen. When ever I can c...
