Re: Preview of updated SharpCap Website

I like the tags. For the Pull-down, maybe just put group the pro features in the same area of the menu (last). Could the font be colored (e.g. gold for pro features)?

Re: DSLR functionality

I think the monitored folder option would be a good idea as well. It would allow the DSLRs to use it but also one could also use it to learn about Sharpcap without having to learn how to use it at the scope. It might make it easier to make demonstration videos for the basic features. I would make it...

Re: Preview of updated SharpCap Website

I like it. The only thing I would recommend is to break out the list of features so that it's obvious from looking at the list what features are Pro and which are Standard. Same in the Pull-Down feature list.

Re: Sharpcap 3.1 AA183M sensor analysis for Gain/offset/exposure time

I liked the video as well. Robin, is it preferred to leave the camera in the scope? I thought I read it was better to do the sensor analysis with the camera only.

Re: Saved as viewed images dimmer

Is it possible that when it gets uploaded, it gets converted? I think some sites might convert or scale an image which might result in it looking different online.

Re: Two instances of Sharpcap sharing the same stack

I figured it wouldn't be something in the next version or two unless it was pretty simple. It probably wouldn't be that common of a use case as well. But it would be interesting to make our own dragonfly telescopes with some small, cheap newtonians. Maybe just send the image to watch folders (one fo...

Two instances of Sharpcap sharing the same stack

There's a conversation on CN in the EAA forum about using two matched scopes with one color camera and one mono camera simultaneously, using the mono camera for luminance and sensitivity and the color camera to provide the color information. Is it possible to add a feature so that multiple instances...

Re: Orientation question

Yes, the mount. Use the elevation and alt/az knobs on the mount. Leave the mount at 90° while you adjust it.

Re: SharpCap displaying to a 2nd HDMI video broadcast, a clean video without menus or boarders

One person on CN recommended running a script to do it. He said he did it with 2.9.
