Flip / rotate displayed image when acquiring RAW images

Post by DonDavies » Tue Feb 13, 2018 4:24 am

When trying to get full 12-bit depth with my camera, I record in RAW FITS format. Unfortunately the display is rotated 180 degrees from normal, which can be corrected in post processing, but it makes guiding and recognizing star fields very difficult. I would like to see the ability to flip up/down and left/right on the displayed image.

at the moment SharpCap shows a flip option for some cameras (where the camera itself supports it - ZWO I think is the main example here). It would be nice in a future version to add a flip option for other cameras and it's something that has been mentioned before. One annoyance is there is no 'right way up' for FITS files - major processing packages (AstroArt and PixInsight) disagree over which way up they should be displayed! What appears right way up in one is the wrong way up in the other :(
