Re: The effect of light pollution filters on native one-shot color camera white balance

Thanks, I suppose the quick take home message is this graph, which shows how each LP filter affects the %RGB signal intensities for my OSC camera. 0% difference in all three RGB signal intensities would achieve a "theoretically unison" white balance. It shows how green is still the most intense sign...

Re: SharpCap and CCD Inspector

I used it for a trial period, but never bought it. Instead, I use Astap, which has a similar built-in feature to ccdinspector. It's not as fully featured, but it's free.

Maybe give that one a try. Hope this helps,

Re: Unable to stack

On top of what Robin said, whenever I have this issue, I find I need to revisit the black point threshold value inside FWHM measurement to figure out what that value should be with a star. If it's too low or high, I don't get the right FWHM reading and sometimes it doesn't even detect any stars. Onc...

Reduce exposure during dithering saves 1.0s individual frames.

Hi Robin, The reduce exposure whilst dithering in live stack mode is a wonderful feature. However, when the save individual frames box is checked, I often find a few stray 1.0s exposures in the rawframes folder. Not a major bug, I just delete them, but I thought I should mention it. The first time I...
