Re: Applying Dark Frames with SharpPro Live Stacking

Robin, I meant save raw frames like you stated. Doesn’t that kind of defeat the process of live stacking except for the visual experience on the laptop? I know that I could apply the dark frames right before I live stack like you had mentioned earlier but that seems kind of backwards because you won...

Re: Applying Dark Frames with SharpPro Live Stacking

I suppose I could check the option to cut each individual frame and then go back in later to apply the dark frames? Is that called post processing and what are the steps to do that in Sharpcap?

Re: Applying Dark Frames with SharpPro Live Stacking

Robin, Ok that makes sense I was trying to understand how would apply the darks when the image is already stacked so it’s actually reverse in EAA compared to true Astrophotography. I do understand that I have the option of cutting individual frames and then using a program like Deep Sky Stacker to a...

Applying Dark Frames with SharpPro Live Stacking

I captured 10 dark frames when i ended my night imaging and chose to store them in the darks Sharpcap folder. I did not do the auto apply and decided to use the method Pre-Processing method which I don’t know how to do with a image that has already been stacked. I understand when doing Astrophotogra...

Re: Trouble finding Stars during Frame Alignment

[quote=admin post_id=7979 time=1553626716 user_id=2] The most important trick here is to check the box that highlights the stars that have been detected – that way you can see exactly what effect your changes are having as each new frame comes in. I am not sure what you mean check the box that highl...

Trouble finding Stars during Frame Alignment

I am new to EAA and live stacking with SharpCap Pro. Last night I went out and was observing M42 the Orion Nebula and did about a 5 minute total exposure and only dropped a few frames. The Logs showed that it found at least three stars for frame alignment I then decided to observe and stack the brig...
