1s Dither ignored frames not added to FWHM chart

Post by nexusjeep »

Hi Robin,
I use the live stack to access the build up of the image and also for the FWHM chart to access the focus per image as it changes through the course of the evening. Until recently I never dithered due to the loss of imaging exposures but with the new feature to change to 1s exposures whilst dithering this is now something I have tried and will use in future sessions.

However the 1s ignored frames do cause me a bit of an issue as during the dither operation all of my previous frames get shot off the left hand end by the ignored frames and the ??? values in the chart. Would it be possible as the software knows the dither is occurring to not add these into the FWHM values chart so that you only see the actual image frames as I can then get a lot better idea as to what is going on with my focus other wise I only see four frames of values before the dither kicks in and shunts them all off of the screen.
