Re: Atik Horizon

Robin, Phil is not using an Atik Infinity camera which is a CCD he is using an Horizon camera which is CMOS (same sensor as the ZWO ASI1600MC). I would love to use Sharpcap 3.2 Pro with my colour & mono Infinity cameras in order to take advantage of the dark and flat feature, but using the ASCOM dri...

Re: Finer color adjustment in Live Stack

Hi Robin The current colour adjustments are fantastic in live stacking except I also agree with the other comments. I find when using the sliders many times, I must click on a particular slider for that extra colour and it is too strong. We could try a less range of colour control if that will make ...

Robin

Sorry, I forgot to mention that the flat for M1 was captured last week so not with the latest build but applied using the latest build. It was a mono flat with no bias used but again same setting as the lights.

Robin
