text document along side image file

Post by John Whitehead » Fri Aug 21, 2020 12:09 am

Hi,
would it be possible to include in the text document a report stating the condition for the SEEING as well as the FOCUS routines.
This would be great help when looking back as to the conditions of the setup when a particular image was taken.
Thanks John.

Hi,

in up-to-date versions of SharpCap you will find a notes section at the bottom of the controls on the right-hand side – you can put anything you like into the notes and that will get saved into the capture settings file which I think is what you are trying to do.

Cheers, Robin

This is an example of using the Notes facility which appears at the bottom of the camera control panel. This was just to record the filter I used. I could document seeing conditions, cloud cover or anything I wished.
