Re: Focus Assist Problem

Hi,

I think that you've been bitten by a bug in 4944 where the selection area rectangle is not being drawn - this is fixed in 3.1.4949. I expect that the (invisible) selection rectangle wasn't around your star. Sorry about that!

cheers,

Robin

Re: error report

Please try the very latest build of 3.0 (3.0.4076) from http://www.sharpcap.co.uk/sharpcap/downloads - it should fix this issue. If it doesn't please let me know.

thanks,

Robin

Re: The FX selected area is not shown

Thank you - a clever performance improvement to drawing the camera image had the unfortunate side effect of cutting off the selection area code. Fixed in build 4949.

cheers,

Re: Stop or pause capture rarely works

Hi, Ok, good that is working correctly - let's try to get to the bottom of the stop capture problem now. Do you see a notification show at the top of the screen when you press the stop capture button - like thise? Capture.PNG This may take a few seconds to appear if you are using a fast capture and ...

Re: Live Stacking Issues With Revolution Imager R2

I would suggest giving 3.0 a try and using the 'frame rate limit' control - if the total time and frame count still don't line up for you then, let me know.

cheers,

Re: QHY1274M-GPS LAT data discrepancies

Hi Steve good news on the accuracy :) The minimized window is one of those things that I haven't got around to changing because I haven't managed to think of a better approach that remains simple (easy to code) yet. * Stopping you from minimizing it would be more annoying * Hiding the window or clos...

Dave, that joke was dreadful ;) Capture.PNG This shows the gain relationship for the different cameras - The first column is the gain amount in simple terms - ie how many times brighter is it than the lowest gain. The dB value is just 20*Log10(gain). The other columns show the values that the differ...

Re: QHY1274M-GPS LAT data discrepancies

Hi Steve, as far as I know the GPS output is not supported in 16 bit mode (certainly mine has never worked). I have mentioned this to QHY, but it has never been fixed. The latitude fix is in build 3.1.4944, which you can get from the beta downloads page - please give it a try and let me know if it i...

Re: QHY1274M-GPS LAT data discrepancies

Hi Steve, sorry, the pattern I gave above was for LONG not LAT - I thought they were both the same, but they aren't. The pattern for LAT is SDDMMFFFFF but I was using SDDMMXFFFF My home location is at 51deg XX.995 min North, so the fact that I'd lost the 1/10ths of a minute and brought the rest of i...

Lovely image Minos! To answer the question about gain values between camera manufacturers: QHY gains are in dB above minimum gain (20dB is a factor of 10). If the gain value goes higher than 100 then they are in 0.1dB instead of dB ZWO gains are in 0.1dB above minimum gain Altair gains are in % of m...
