Saving live stack individual frames as fits

Post by nm1213 » Thu Sep 13, 2018 4:40 am

Hi,

How do I save live stack individual frames as fits rather than png?

Thanks!

N.

Set the default still format to FITS in the settings - https://docs.sharpcap.co.uk/2.9/#Prefer ... l%20Format - may need a restart for it to take in live stacking.

cheers,

Robin

Thanks Robin, will give it a shot. I thought I had changed it to fits, as I use quick capture to get a few frames in fits to pass to the plate solver. This works fine... but for some reason my live stacked individual frames ended up in .png, even though my quick capture images showed up as *.fts.

I expected that quick capture and live stack individual frames would be controlled by the same setting.
