Re: Hardware linked camera Profiles

Hi Robin, that's kind of how SGPro works with it's profiles and one of the (many) reasons I prefer to use Sharpcap.

Re: Installing AstroTortolla for plate solving

Hi Bruce, just to chime in your plate solving efforts, I started out with Astrotortilla and quickly switched to All Sky Plate Solver http://www.astrogb.com/astrogb/All_Sky_ ... olver.html and never looked back..

Hope this helps, if not, I tried.. :)

Re: OSC camera single captures

Good stuff Bruce. I agree, with so little clear skies and so much light pollution around here, I cant be bothered to keep switching through filters all night and build an image that way. I tried this approach and its not for me and my current situation. Right now, if I get a small window to play, I ...

January is not entirely over, but with no clear skies in sight, I though I'd post a few targets I've enjoyed acquiring through Live Stack in Sharpcap. All frames saved individually and post processed in Pixinsight and Photoshop. Full rez and details in the links: https://www.astrobin.com/9j3re6/?nc=...
