Re: Settings

Hi Charles, Use this feature to figure it out: https://docs.sharpcap.co.uk/3.2/#Smart%20Histogram Reading the rest of the manual will help you decide which settings are best for your equipment and skies, it's very well written and quite informative.

Altair Hypercam 269C Sensor Analysis?

Does anyone have any actual sensor analysis data on this new camera that they'd be willing to share here?

I would be very interested to see it, as there is currently nothing on Altair's website to judge from.

Cheers,
Minos

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.

https://www.hnsky.org/astap.htm

Maybe give that one a try. Hope this helps,

Minos
