Hi Robin,

Hi,

to be honest, I don't know for sure. I have a new version of the ZWO SDK ready to go in an update for SharpCap unfortunately the change log they have provided just says 'fixed bugs'!

I hope to have this version available online within a few days, so if 6433 does not work, try the next update.

Robin

Hi Bruce,

the very latest version of SharpCap that I've put online just a few days ago has the September update in it, so if you update that you should be fine.

Cheers, Robin

Hi Bruce,

that's good to know – hope you get some clear skies soon to test out your new toy. Someone must have been buying a lot of Astro equipment here in the UK as we've had rained solidly for the last two days and its forecast to continue cloudy for the next week. :)

Cheers, Robin

:cry: I think I am about to give up AP. I have had about a total of 6 hrs of good skies to image over the past 3 months.

We are still in hurricane season with tons of rain with thunder and lightning storms. We are expecting at least another 10 days of this. It makes the hobby tough to enjoy after continued bad weather and even after I built a really nice observatory above my 4-car garage. I guess I should stick with model railroad building.

If or when I ever see a few clear nights, I will give it and the SX-694 a spin- assuming I don't forget how to use SharpCap by then.

This is all I can get with the new 294mm pro- a 4x300s Ha (5nm, Chroma) of a piece of M42, as you would expect using a c11" EdgeHD @f/10. A total of 20 minutes between the clouds at pre-dawn- ugh!
