Re: Live Stack with Flat Frame Bug?

Hi Robin I finally got some clear skies to test my new ASI294MC Pro using my C9.25 # F7.2 (Used a Celestron 6.3 reducer/flattener). I only capture two flat frame one a mono with bias selected and the other a colour with bias selected using your latest SC version you posted here. Target was M33 using...

Re: Adding an intensity slider for flat calibration

Thank you for getting back and for the information provided reading the use of the new bias feature in flat frame subtraction. I always thought that bias was more for CCD sensors rather then for CMOS sensor but I see what you mean and will try it out. Yes, I was live on Chris's (BlackWikkett) NSN br...

Adding an intensity slider for flat calibration

Hi Robin I hope you are doing better these days and wish you good health. I have been away for several months but getting back into astronomy and have a question regarding the flat (live) calibration. Is it possible to add an intensity slider to the flat subtraction feature in SharpCap 3.2 Pro for t...

Re: Live Stack Histogram

Robin, It is good that you have written a code for the upcoming 3.2 to save the display histograms setting but in 8 bits only. I would prefer to save my images using the full 12 bits from my ASI cameras. ** I current use the display histogram as a "display only" when I adjust the live histograms poi...

Re: Live Stack Histogram

I am fully 100% with Don on these requests Robin and it would make adjusting the live histogram so much easier.

Re: Camera stop exposing feature

Hi Robin This ". SharpCap 3.3 *will* have a still camera mode where it will only take images when you press the 'shoot' button" is exactly what I was asking for and look forward to being in full control of my exposures. I hope that this will also work when using the live stacking feature. Thank you!...

Camera stop exposing feature

Robin, I am not too sure if this was asked before but can Sharpcap have a feature added that would allow one to stop their camera without shutting down? The reason I ask this is because sometimes I want to my ZWO ASI cameras to use some features in The SkyX but, I need to 1st disconnect the camera f...

Re: Plans for SharpCap 3.2

Hi Robin Here are the advantages of using curves over levels. 1. Curves provides 256 levels of tone and color controls on each color channel and Master channel, while Levels allows only three adjustments! 2. Curves provides more customized contrast control than Levels. 3. Curves allows quantitative ...

Re: Plans for SharpCap 3.2

Robin, if possible a live curves adjustment tool when live stacking would be awesome? Looking forward to the Sharpcap 3.2 release and I would opt to beta test this for you.

Bin 2 Hardware binning on acting weird

Hi Robin I was able to take dark's with my ASI 183 mono camera to create a master using Sharpcap using bin 2 with hardware binning on by lowering the turbo USB from 98% to 91% (will not work any higher than 91%). When I am using Mono 16 under color space with bin 2 and hardware binning on there is n...
