Re: Bayer matrix issue on saved images

Hi Don,

this is expected when you capture in RAW mode - all saved files are RAW and will show the Bayer pattern unless you load them into software that understands the need to debayer the RAW images. PIPP is a good choice for processing RAW images into colour either singly or in bulk.

cheers,

Robin

Re: Plate-solving using Altair Hypercam 183C

Hi, first of all, don't delay in purchasing your 183C, as I was speaking to Altair today and that model is selling like hot cakes! Also there's a free 1 year SharpCap pro license bundled with that Altair model and a range of other new Altair cameras. Anyway, back to plate solving... SharpCap 3.0 sup...

Re: Pyro - remote connection and execute command

You could always make the python open up a known TCP port for incoming requests and make that port give out the Pyro URI to the calling application, then the calling application would connect to port 9999 (or whatever), get the Pyro URI and then connect properly.

Re: Need Sequence Lengh to be larger than 10,000

Hi Andrea, I'm really sorry that this limitation in SharpCap messed up your eclipse imaging :( :oops: I'd never imagined the sequence being that long - 10000 seemed to be a ridiculously big limit when I wrote that code. Anyway, thanks for letting me know about the problem - I will increase the limit...

Re: Mono images with ASI1600MC-cool

DSS will only debayer 16 bit mono frames for some reason that obviously made sense to its authors. If you have 8 bit RAW frames then you will need to debayer them in PIPP or similar before stacking.

Re: Mono images with ASI1600MC-cool

Hi, there is a setting in DSS to tell it to debayer 16 bit FITS frames which you need to set (and tell it the right bayer pattern). You can also debayer in a program like PIPP and then stack the debayered images. The DSS settings are shown in this post - https://www.cloudynights.com/topic/578884-gre...

Re: focus control

Hi there,

this function is already available as long as your focuser has an ASCOM driver.

See http://docs.sharpcap.co.uk/2.9/#Configuring%20SharpCap and http://docs.sharpcap.co.uk/2.9/#Focuser%20Control.

cheers,

Re: Pyro - remote connection and execute command

I think you can fix the lockup problem just by running the requestLoop in a separate thread - ie import Pyro4 import thread @Pyro4.expose class GreetingMaker(object): def get_fortune(self, name): return "Hello, {0}. Here is your fortune message:\n" \ "Behold the warranty -- the bold print giveth and...

Re: Pyro - remote connection and execute command

Just as a note, you cannot 'expose' the SharpCap scripting objects like the SharpCap application, Cameras, Controls, etc since they are strange proxies to .NET objects and incompatible with pyro. You will need to write plain python classes to make the functionality you want available and expose thos...
