Sigma Clipping setting during Live Stacking

Does Sharpcap Pro support Sigma Clipping and if so, where is this set and the values?

I have an image that has a satellite streak through it and I would like to prevent this from happening in the future.

Celstron Focuser with Sharpcap

I can't seem to get the Celestron Focuser to work with Sharcap using Celestron Focus Driver using the AUX cable connection. If I use a separate USB Cable to the focuser instead of the AUX connection, it work just fine using the Celestron USB Focus Driver. I don't have an issue with the ASCOM drivers...

Polemaster or Sharcap Pro Polar Alignment

I would like to attempt to use the Sharpcap Pro Polar alignment instead of purchasing a Polemaster for my equatorial mount. I do not have a guiding scope and my camera is a ZWO ASI 183MC that I use for imaging with a Hyperstar f/1.9 Focal Ratio which brings my focal length down to 390MM on my 8 inch...

Re: Save Individual Frames Option

Thanks Robin. Let me know if you find anything in the Sharpcap registry. When I do go out in the field again with real data, I will try one image and stop and save the capture and I will go look in the directories for raw frames. If I do find some, what would you like me to do? I definitely have the...

Re: Save Individual Frames Option

Robin,

I send a PM to admin which I believe is you with a link to my dropbox with the output of the reg command. For some reason, It's stuck in the forum outbox and not sent???

I have been able to get this to fail using the dummy cam for Orion indoors.

What would you like me to try when I go out again?
My apologies I meant to say I could not get this to fail with the Orion Dummy Cam.

I only saw it fail when I was out in the field.

Automatic Focusing Support with Focusers

I was wondering if Sharpcap Pro will automatically perform an auto focus with the Celestron Focuser or the Starlight Instruments Electronic Focusing system? I have all of the ASCOM drivers loaded on my PC. The key is automatic focus and not so much control it manually which I am sure works.

Re: Save Individual Frames Option

Hi, The fact that I've received two separate reports now of this means that there must be a bug in here somewhere, but I still haven't managed to locate the situation that causes the bug to happen. Are you able to turn off the saving of frames at all? For instance does it stop if you check and then...
