Adjust settings for better performance

Post by chongo228 » Sun Aug 18, 2019 8:47 pm

This has got me several times in the past. I usually remember to adjust the settings after a few minutes of scratching my head. If you notice in the photo I have the exposure set for two seconds. Look in the bottom right and you will note the time by the green bar says 10 seconds. This was because it was taking the computer 10 seconds to download a 2 second exposure.

If you having slow performance go to File/settings/memory and adjust the sliders for live stacking or frame rate.

I had adjusted these settings when I shoot planets and often forget to move them back for DSO.

Hope this saves someone some time and frustration.
