Post by Dirkastro » Sat May 12, 2018 6:55 pm

Greetings to you all as this is my first post, i have a celestron 236m and even though its at the top of the list under cameras it wont connect and says the parameters are wrong..is this something i need to change on the laptop? device manager maybe? I have sharpcap loaded on another laptop but ive decided to use a old windows 8 laptop as it has a better battery life for use away from home.. any help appreciated Dirk

Please can you try to connect to the camera (get the error) and then go to Help->Show Log, then take the entire contents of the SharpCap Log (press the 'Copy To Clipboard' button) then share that log information here.

thanks,

Robin

Ah, ok, I see...

You are using a very old version of SharpCap (2.9) which is no longer supported or updated. You should ideally move onto SharpCap 3.1 (or 3.0 if you are using Windows Vista). I am only fixing issues in SharpCap 3.1 these days while I'm working on SharpCap 3.2.

If you install a modern version of SharpCap, you should also install the 'SharpCap Prerequisite Installer' which you can find on the download page - that installs some extra Microsoft components that should help SharpCap 3.0/3.1 see your camera by talking to it directly rather than having to use the webcam driver. Hopefully that will fix the issues you are having. Do make sure you have the latest driver software for the Celestron camera installed too.

Hi Robin,the version i have on the other laptop is version 2.9 too,i have no issues with that with the same camera..i did try the 3.0 version but in the polar align feature i found it was taking a long time to solve so i reverted back to 2.9..I will update to the pro version if the camera can link with the software or the laptop is stopping it in someway,whats the latest version thats compatable?

What you are seeing is why I try to steer people away from using webcam drivers for cameras that are supported directly - the webcam approach will quite happily work on 4 machines out of five and then fail on the fifth for no easy-to-find reason.

The best solution here is to

1) get the camera working nicely on the newest version of SharpCap that will install on your PC
2) sort out any issues with polar alignment (usually down to star detection settings and exposure/gain adjustment)

See the download page for verison compatibility, but basically Win7/8/10 should install 3.1, Win Vista should install 3.0

cheers,

Robin
