Re: Unity Gain

I figured that I needed to run the sensor analysis first to get the 'brain' but it did not totally finish because I kept on on getting this message (screenshot). I am not sure what happened but I now see the 'brain' on the left hand side. Not sure if this worked because the sensor analysis partially...

Re: Unity Gain

I also don't have the brain on the left hand side of the tool bars in Smart Histogram so I can test this Pro feature.

Unity Gain

I am trying to find the 'sweet' spot for my gain imaging with my F/1.9 Hyperstar system using a ZWO ASI183MC Pro cooled camera. Everybody is telling me that I need to check the Unity gain. Is there some other setting besides the Sharpcap gain setting that I need to change somewhere?

Re: ZWO Camera Drop while using Sharpcap

It looks like mine is set at 80 with Auto enabled. So would you suggest like going down to 40 and test that first or just disable Auto all together for Turbo USB? I had another question not related to this issue. When I start up Sharpcap I get this message: It looks like you are taking long exposure...

ZWO Camera Drop while using Sharpcap

I recently bought a Pegasus Power Pocket Advance which allows me to have all my power needs and USB hub and Dew Heater controls in one box. While using this box I have noticed that periodically I will use my connectivity to my ZWO imaging camera. At first I thought it was the Pegasus box but I tried...

Re: Not able to stack frames into PixInsight BPP Script from Sharpcap

Robin, Thanks for confirming for what I thought was the problem all along. It agree with you since the flat is monochrome, why do any of these products like DSS, APP or PI have a problem with this flat? So in the future if I decide to use the 'RAW' option to save individual frames, I will use RAW 16...

Re: Not able to stack frames into PixInsight BPP Script from Sharpcap

Robin,

Below is link to my One Drive with files. I included the camera settings, master flat and dark and 5 of the light frames. Sharpcap does not have a problem stacking with my flat but other products don't like it like PI or APP.

Re: Not able to stack frames into PixInsight BPP Script from Sharpcap

Robin, I have having the same problem when trying to stack and calibrate using APP (Astro PIxel Processor) is does not like my flat. I don't have this issue when I stack using Sharpcap so I was surprised that other products don't seem to like my flat that I generate from Sharpcap. Would of it helped...
