Finally got a chance to test it and it's working GREAT for me. I'm doing 2 minute exposures right now and the dither consumed 15 seconds before live stacking continued.

+1 Hi Robin, I'd just like to add my support for this request. It's frustrating to lose a whole light frame (often 2+ minutes of exposure time) when the dithering process only takes a few seconds. This becomes very costly (25% lost frames) if I want to dither every fourth frame over a 3-4 hour perio...
Does stacking multiple stacks yield the same result as creating one stack of the total number of frames? For example, suppose that I create a live stack of 100 frames tonight and save as a 16-bit FITS file one evening, then create a live stack of 200 frames of the same image on another night. If I t...

Try reducing the 'sigma' value in the SharpCap settings....". It was initially set to a value of 50 and I tried lowering the va...

My next step was to open SharpCap to configure it for plate solving. I opened the SharpCap Settings area and the "Pl...
