Re: Polar align error

Hi, In general the best way to be sure whether you have good polar alignment or not is to take some long exposure images and see whether the stars trail or not. The proof of the pudding is in the eating and all that… I used several goto based alignment tools before I added polar alignment SharpCap a...

Re: Problem in 3.2.6086: image stays on after focus assistant close

Hi, The last couple of entries in your first log seem to indicate that the camera had stopped sending frames to the application which would explain why the image stopped updating and you ended up stuck with the previous image.

Re: Altair 290C not connecting in SharpCap

Hi,

That's weird – I have the 290 M USB2 and it works fine with the latest versions. The only thing I can think of is to try upgrading your version of Altair capture (which will also upgrade the camera drivers) to see if that helps.

Re: stacking from a network folder

Hi,

you would probably need to specify the server name and path with backslashes not forward slashes

Code: Select all

Re: Don't know if this is a bug or not

Hi,

Not really a bug so much as just not getting round to updating the auto update files.

I usually leave it a while after a new version is released just in case I put a silly bug in it before I make that version available in auto update. Recently I haven't got round to it though.

Re: Can I have multiple profiles for my hardware.

Hi,

No, you shouldn't need to close the camera or restart SharpCap – when you change the hardware in that settings dialogue the camera will automatically reset and the new hardware will be shown in the controls.

Re: Brain icon doesn't show - I have a valid license

Hi,

What are the minimum and maximum values you can set for the white balance controls? Hopefully they'll be distinctive and I can put some code in double spot those minimum/maximum is and skip past the normal reset step.

Re: [SOLVED] Install of .5132 fails

Hi,

The easiest fix should be to download the version that you currently have installed again and rerun the downloaded installer. That should either uninstall for you or offer to repair after which you should then be able to uninstall.
