Hi,

When I either add or average images in AA6 SP4 I get a noticeable vertical variation in the background.
Why is this happening?

Thanks

When I download SP3 than I get a "AA7ServicePack3.zip.part" file with about 31 MB and a AA7ServicePack3 zip file with 0MB.

Re: focus window and operation

I have experience continued consternation with the focus routine. I have only once seen a single pixel in the middle of the focus field despite having readouts of the fwhm at less than 1.5. I have been manually focusing but will be changing to autofocus. Just like the instructions; take an image, d...
