Re: In/Out focus buttons in Focuser window

Hi, Still no joy with the photo – I get a 404 error when I click on that link. There are a couple more ways that you can move the focuser quickly – in the focus graph where you have the scan buttons, you can right click on any point in the graph to tell the focuser to move to that point. Also in the...

Re: Issues with QHY 247 c

Two things I can suggest. One is to download the very latest version (updated today) that has an updated qhy SDK and it and the two tweaks that I put in to try to reduce the probability of random crashes with the qhy cameras.

Re: Getting B&W only from ASI071 Pro. It is a color only cam

Hi, If the images are showing a colour when you view them in SharpCap but the saved images appear to be black and white then the problem is that you are saving RAW images and need to get your viewing software to perform a process called debayering to convert them to a colour image – see this thread ...

Re: Brain tool

Hi, Yes, it will suggest a value based on ensuring that the histogram is properly separated zero point (left-hand side). In the brain suggestions window this is referred to as the 'black level' value, which is a synonym for offset or brightness (different camera manufacturers use different terminolo...

Re: darks/flats saving as incorrect color space

Hi, Okay, I see what you're doing – you are using the live stacking functionality to capture a number of shorter frames and stack them and then trying to process the stacked images in deep sky stacker and trying to apply dark frames.

Re: Combining dark frames with different black points

Hi, In theory it could be done (not using SharpCap, but using other software). You could find some processing software that will allow you to adjust the black point of one of the sets of dark frames to match the black point of the other and then merge them together into a master dark.

Re: Flats problem

Hi Tom, Whether the flat will be retained the next time you start SharpCap depends on the choices you've made in the SharpCap settings window – there is an option there to automatically remember the camera settings and restore them each time – if you have that option ticked then the flat correction ...

Re: In/Out focus buttons in Focuser window

Hi, Your attached image didn't show up for some reason, but I wonder if you need to look at this section of the manual in order to set up SharpCap to use your focuser? https://docs.sharpcap.co.uk/3.2/#Hardware%20Tab Alternatively, if you have already set that up and are trying to use the focus assis...
