Re: Download speed on ASCOM vs. native drivers

I found an old post on the Danish forum astronet here: https://www.astronet.dk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2460 Here I wrote a little about the download speed. To put it short, my ZWO 1600MM with 4,656 x 3,520 pixels at 16 BPP = 262,225,920 Bit should be able to transfer ca 20 FPS over USB 3. However, the...

Re: Download speed on ASCOM vs. native drivers

Perhaps it’s because the live view in ZWO’s software is lower quality, I don’t know.
The focus liveview probably also uses ROI.

Re: Download speed on ASCOM vs. native drivers

That’s true, data download via ASCOM is significantly slower than through native drivers, at least for Canon and ZWO, which is the only cameras I’ve been using. For deep sky photography, it doesn’t really matter for me, if every two minute exposure takes one second or 1/20 second to download. But wh...

How does Astroart autofocus compensate for backlash?

How does Astroart compensate for backlash when performing autofocus? Does it use Absolute , Overshoot or another algorithm? I would like to know, so that I know what to enter as backlash in my setup.

Make all images same size/crop all?

Is there an easy way to make a number of images the same size? I am not interested in a script, but one or a few functions with the GUI. After having processed R, G and B lunar series in Autostakkert, the resulting images are of different sizes and Astroart can not combine the channels to a RGB colo...

Re: Using FF Focus in sequence

I've tested the new functionality in SP6a, and it works like a charm.
