Re: Plate Solve Time

I got 1.6 seconds to plate solve the polar alignment with an Intel Computestick (quad core atom processor).

Re: LRGB Stacking

That's a nice clean interface. For acquisition though, I wouldn't limit it to one channel at a time. In narrowband, there are pallets that use the same filter for two channels (e.g. HOO). If you limit it to one channel only, you'd have to do an O-III filter exposure twice (once for green and once fo...

Re: File naming and saving when using filters

You could probably edit the settings to do what you want but you would have to remember to change the settings for each object: http://docs.sharpcap.co.uk/2.9/#Filenames%20Tab Change the "Save Captured Files to:" line to reflect your current target. e.g. C:\users\David\Desktop\SharpCap Captures\M31 ...

Re: Plate solving with Astrotortilla

Is that bit of code editable by the end user (e.g., how would he change the sigma)?

Re: Plate solving with Astrotortilla

When I use Astrotortilla (not with Sharpcap yet), if I'm not getting enough results, I usually wind up adjusting the Sigma value depending on how many objects it finds. You typically need 40 or more results for it to solve. The sigma is lowered to get more results with a minimum value of 20. With a ...

Dithering

I see from the LRGB post that you're considering a sequence building and running feature. Would it be possible to dither using that feature?

Or perhaps it is something that could be done now via scripting (e.g. can the mount be moved a bit via a script)?

Capture to a single color channel

It would be nice to allow mono cameras to capture to a single color channel. One could then use filters to produce narrowband images in colors like the Hubble Pallet or augment a RGB image with Hydrogen Alpha filters.
