Re: SharpCap - a new dawn :)

Hello Robin, "Right now, I have a long long list of ideas for new features to go into SharpCap 3.3" Think that 3.4 comes after 3.3, or it could be 4.0. May be, if each user gives you a new idea per year, then we can have a +1.0 version each year. Also ... 100 users give 100 new feature per...

Re: Polar Alignment without Polaris (workflow)

Hello Norman, Thank you for the scripts. Concerning R ... I install R-Studio 1.3.1073 last August. But for the path definition "default_Rscript" in the script "...R-3.6.2\\bin\\Rscript.exe" ... I have no Rscript.exe in my R-Studio installation. For the pracma installation ... I d...

Re: Polar Alignment without Polaris (workflow)

Hello Norman, Concerning the Sky-Simulator software. You can add some pointing error depending on the slew distance or the slew time. It is nice for checking the plate solving software. The software can perform some small variation for testing PHD2. I have not tested it. But, you can not simulate an...

Re: Polar Alignment without Polaris (workflow)

Hello Norman, Glad to see you back on the SharpCap forum. I do not continue to work on the polar alignment script ... while I do a lot of tests for the QHY-174-GPS camera. But, I have now a new telescope with a new mount (3 and 1 weeks old), so I will be more time outside. And if I use my Berlebach ...

Re: plate solving

Hello Robin, I re-install now the last version 3.2.6457. It works good, but only without the ASCOM 6.5 SP1 or the SP1 RC. I re-install the simple ASCOM 6.5 and it works ... on my desktop with the ASCOM telescope simulator direct, but on my laptop or EAGLE computer it works only using the "devic...

Re: plate solving

Hello, For information ... Sky-Simulator works again ... but it was a long way for that. On my desktop computer: It was working yesterday after my message, but only with the ASCOM Hub. But this morning, I receive a message that the ASCOM 6.5 SP1 was released. Also I download it and install it ... an...

Re: plate solving

Hello, Does somebody try and use the ASCOM Sky-Simulator ? I do today some installation of the plate-solve software on my laptop ... and after ~ 3 hours of different tests, it was not possible to have the different plate solve software installed (and working) on my laptop. Then I install the Sky-Sim...

Re: QHY 174 GPS Calibration LED issue // USB Traffic weirdness

Hello Robin, Thank you for script function. In the past, you mention that you maybe will prepare a list of the available script functions. Do you have some progress on this ? ;) If you have some "difficulties" to see in the 3D view of the pdf files ... then you can have a look on a "2...
