Re: LAA version of AA6

Hello, the LAA version is installed in your PC, the link is the Start menu of Windows, or you may create a new Icon for it on the Windows desktop, picking the file from the Astroart installation folder. At 6000x4000 pixels you cannot have more than 10 windows opened at the same time with the standar...

Re: Trichromy - large images?

OK, so this is not a memory problem, probably the images have just different size. Use the command "Image/Border" to cut a few pixels from the bigger image to match the size of the smaller image. In a future SP there will be a notice about this.

Re: FITS Header fields data origins

Hello, they are both the approximate center of the image. They are not standard, but widely used. Astroart writes both to help other programs which may support only one. They are read from the telescope. Reference: https://heasarc.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/fcg/common_dict.html https://heasarc.gsfc.nasa.gov...

Re: Trichromy - large images?

Hi, if you think that it's a memory issue you may use the 64 bit version or the LAA version. By the way, is 5000 pixel the final size of the image, or it' 5000 x 3 x 2?

Re: Startup parameters

Hi, it will work with any setting of Astroart.
Once the "Config" folder is created (remember: not in Program Files, because it will be write-protected) all .ini files will be saved there.

Re: QHY CCD problems in AA7

Hi, may you confirm that you connected to the camera with Maxim via the ASCOM interface? In the ASCOM standard, there are no ramp options, only a single setpoint, and the ramp is performed by the hardware or by the low-level driver. If yes, then in other software there is an hidden sequence (but the...

Re: QHY CCD problems in AA7

Hello, I'm glad that you solved. Some notes: It seems to me that PHD was connected to the camera via a native driver, not via ASCOM(?), maybe via ASCOM you would have obtained the same result? The ASCOM QHY was indeed very old (1.0.0) and it showed the name of another model (QHY5II) which is differe...

Re: QHY CCD problems in AA7

Hello, about problem #1, verify that you have the latest QHY9 ASCOM driver (version 206 beta2 , https://www.qhyccd.com/en/QHY9.html ) what is the behaviour with other ASCOM software? The dynamics to bring the temperature to a given value is not controllable by software, in ASCOM the only command is:...
