Re: keyboard shortcuts

Hi,

not sure what keys will make sense in detail yet (numeric key pad keys are not so logical for laptop users who don't have a key pad...).

However, you can remap your keys to whatever SharpCap uses with this software - https://autohotkey.com/

cheers,

Robin

Re: SharpCap on Win XP?

Hi, you have to go back to SharpCap 2.9 for a version that will install and run correctly on WinXP. There have been some reports of issues with the installer on WinXP, if you encounter those and you have access to a newer PC then install SharpCap 2.9 on the newer PC, copy the installed files (from C...

Re: Plate solving for Camera Orientation

Hi Brian, thanks for that info - looks like adding the -W option to the command line will cause a WCS file to be generated, which sould then be easy to read. The angle code looks like the standard way to extract an angle from a rotation matrix, so no problem there. I'll look into this when I get a c...

Re: opening download

Hi,

to reduce image size, open the image in Paint and then save it as a JPEG file, which should be much smaller.

Use the Attachments tab (below the message you are writing) to add attachments to the post. The image button above is to link to images on other web sites.

Re: Save as RAW (32bit) & Sigma Clipping Stacking algorithm

Hi, the 32 bit files are saved as signed integer values (-2 billion odd to + 2billion odd). Unless you are using a dark frame then the -ve values don't get used at all (and even with a dark, they don't get used much), but that explains the starting at 50% brightness because SharpCap essentially only...

Re: Additions/changes - Near Live Imaging

That's great news :)

Please let me know of any scenes that don't AWB well (send me the stack saved as 16 bit). Also if the step size for manual adjustments by clicking above/below seems too big I can reduce it from 0.1db to 0.05db.

cheers,

Re: opening download

Hi Warren, if you have the files in your download folder and they are about 25-26 megabytes in size then you have downloaded them correctly. The only thing left to do should be to double click (not just single click) on one of the installer files to run it and install the program. The log files that...

Re: Save as RAW (32bit) & Sigma Clipping Stacking algorithm

Ok, that's not right somewhere then. Please can you share the capture settings you are using (just save an image or a video and SharpCap will save the capture settings file alongside the saved file).

cheers,

Re: Save as RAW (32bit) & Sigma Clipping Stacking algorithm

Hi,

what application are you trying to load the FITs files into? I have just tested saving 32 bit from Sigma clipped stack and had success loading into in DSS, FitsLiberator, PI and AstroArt. PIPP didn't like the files at all and refused to load them. No sign of any corrupt output.

cheers,

Robin
