Re: ASI 290 mini mono and SC problems

Robin

Other way around ...so the results bothered me too

I may not have done the “test” correctly though

Don’t fret about this ...I will work on 2s exposures and high gain to start with and see where the this goes

Re: ASI 290 mini mono and SC problems

If I follow you on sensitivity and am doing this properly the 290 needed exposure is 9.9ms and the 224 is 2.0ms .This gets the histogram for both to 50%

I will need your coaching to tell me how these two exposure settings tell me what to do with other SharpCap settings

Thx

Robin

read the 3.2 manual and see how to capture darks. It says SC can subtract darks for direct show cameras within live stack. I have one. Does this happen automatically or if not.............. what is the process i follow.

thx Bruce Heath

The manual doesn't say

Re: SharpCap 3.2 Now Available

robin

while waiting for an answer

i cycled through all my versions--2.9 to 3.2 and did dark captures with each

when i got to 3.2 this time it worked

i did it again and it worked again

not sure why it didn't first time....but it failed twice


good to go!

all the best

Bruce
