capture progress not displaying

Post by ntphey » Mon Dec 02, 2019 4:44 am

HI. New user with a QHY168C and 5IIIC. Just got the 168 and having problems, among them: not seeing capture progress as advertised during a capture sequence. It shows each frame being captured with time elapsed and remaining, but no indication of number of frames captured or ETA. Works fine with the 5IIIc, though. Any thoughts? Do you need the log? I will try to attach it.

I don't see anything particularly untoward in the log file that you included. Nothing bad seems to be going on.

From your description, I'm assuming that the bit that is missing is the progress indicator highlighted in the image below

I'm not sure I've encountered this going missing before, but I would note that it doesn't appear unless you choose one of the limits (number of frames or amount of time) for the capture.

Cheers, Robin
