Re: Custom frame transform?

eek, you can't change the resolution of the frame in a frame transform or in response to any of the events on the Camera class (FrameCaptured, BeforeFrameDisplay). If you are happy to run the algorithm and then leave the image at the same resolution either with 2x2 pixel blocks or only the image in ...

Re: Skyris 445M

Hi, try the 3.2 beta version - 3.1 requires some extra dlls to be installed to talk to Skyris cameras, but I believe I have managed to pack all the required dlls into the SharpCap 3.2 installer. If that doesn't work, try installing x86 flycapture on your machine (as well as the x64 version) cheers, ...

Re: ASI120MM dropped frames

Yes, it's a very low level thing. There used to be a firmware updater and alternate camera firmware (on the ZWO site) that you could use to put it back to the normal packet size - this was needed for either Mac or Linux compatibility (can't remember which). Mind you, if it's working now I wouldn't g...

Re: ASI120MM dropped frames

The USB2 versions of this camera operate at a non-standard USB packet size to squeeze a higher frame rate out than would normally be achievable. It's possible that your USB2 port is less than happy with this non-standard tweak but the USB3 port copes better with it. The USB3 versions of the camera (...

Re: Starlight Express not listed. Why?

Hi, SX cameras should be installed in SC 3.1 and above. You need to have installed the SX drivers for your camera first and in SC 3.1 you also need to install this additional software : http://downloads.sharpcap.co.uk/download.html?downloadId=installs/SharpCapPreReqs-3.1.5142.0.exe&version=3.1&produ...

Re: Sharpcap 3.1 -3.2 vs 2.9 low performances

Hi, I don't have a machine of similar spec to test on, but on a normal desktop machine I get the expected high frame rates with the ASI174MC - previewing at 150fps and capturing at 140fps+ to SSD. This makes it likely that the slowdown you are seeing is due to the lower specs of your mini PC. I thin...

Re: ASI120MM dropped frames

Hi, this is an issue that I have investigated before and not come up with any solution - basically the 120MM/MC on USB2 can end up dropping frames in the case of 16 bit mode and longer exposures. In some cases turning down the Turbo USB setting may help. You may find that using an older version of S...

Re: Platesolve OK, sync not (EQMOD)

Hi, all the relevant information to help track down what is going wrong should be in the SharpCap log after you have attempted the 'solve and sync' operation, so please just post the log here. For this it would be best to use the latest SharpCap 3.2 beta build as that may have bug fixes (and more de...

Re: Picture upload via FTP

Excellent - good luck!

The python scripting is there for just this sort of thing where someone has a request for a feature that would suit them perfectly but isn't going to be used by many SharpCap users - they can add their special feature with the scripting.

cheers,

Re: SharpCap Closes Itself On Minimizing

Aha! I had a separate report of this problem, but in that report I didn't find out that it's only in Night vision mode. That being said - I've just tested this (3.2.5762) when in night vision mode and I can minimize and restore as much as I want with no issues. Does it depend on something else perha...
