Sharpcap sensor analysis on the Altair astro hypercam

Post by AstroDude » Thu Apr 26, 2018 8:47 pm

here is a link for those who would like to try out the very informative sensor analysis algorithm.
Be it just wanting to see how dark your skies really are or getting ready for a night of astroimaging and not sure how to setup your Camera.
let SC 3.1 Pro take care of all of your imaging concerns. just sit back and let it do its wonders..
you ll be be glad you did. no more guessing Gain / offset and exposure times.

Enjoy ! :D

A useful piece of work with the video Mitch.

Have you done any comparisons between 'traditional' capture settings and those being offered by the sensor analysis/smart histogram? Also using the sensor analysis/smart histogram combination, what impact has there been on your post-processing techniques and final image outcomes?
