interested in any features able to provide live images closer and closer to what can be achieved with heavy post processing solutions like Pix for example.

I know that its may be not possible to achieve the same level, but all feature able to give significant (visible) improvement to images is for me, mandatory to add here in the livestacking part of sharpcap...

its amazing to see non astro people watching on a wide screen what we can see through our scope, and doing this live is far more amazing for them and us... thats the future of amateur astro for me....

+1 from me as well. I wanted to post a question whether drizzling is considered on the roadmap but having gradient removal would be a lot more valuable first.

SharpCap has saved my observing (at home I live under Bortle 8) and has allowed me to see objects I would have never considered as visual targets, so thanks Robin for creating it!

AstroLive developer here. Happy to provide info on the algorithm I use and/or donate code so that this could be made to work in SharCap. Email me if you're interested.
