  1. Does anybody here know how to use IronPython scripting that is used in SharpCap Pro? I'm looking for help writing a very simple script....at least I think it should be. But I'm completely dumb when it comes to this language and am having no luck on my own. Here's what I wish to do for the upcoming Mercury Solar Transit with my Lunt 80mm Ha scope. I want to make a timelapse video from a series of stacked .ser files. I want to shoot 1000 frames once every 30 seconds that is exposed for the surface. exposure time TBD. Then, I want to shoot another 1000 frames exposed for the edge prominence details. I would like to place these two files in two different directories on separate harddrives. And of course have this script repeat itself for the entire duration of the transit. Renaming and/or numbering the files would be a bonus. I've posted the same request on the SharpCap forum and received limited help from the admin because I think he assumes I understand the scripting language which I do not. I understand it enough to edit exposure times and directory locations but the whole language is just very confusing to me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Beautiful Images Dave! Congrats and thanks for sharing.
  3. It's been quite a while but I think this was the post that helped me solve my problem. https://www.cloudynights.com/topic/584026-cgx-l-noise-vibration-issue/?fromsearch=1
  4. 100x60second exposures. The subject was inching towards the Las Vegas light bubble so there's an issue with that at the bottom of the frame. 12/16/2018 Canon 5D MarkII, Rokinon 24mm 1.4, ISO1600, 60-second exposures, tracked on iOptron ZEQ25 mount. Individual frames processed in Lightroom, exported as TIFFs and stacked in Sequator, final tweaking and crop done in PhotoShopCC.
  5. Not that I could find in the program or manual.....hince the comet trailing. I really like the program though for regular stacking.
  6. I finally had a chance to do a little processing on these images from 12/16. Here are the details: 12/16/2018 12:47am-2:40am PST Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 70-200mm f2.8 lens - Shot at 200mm f2.8 ISO 1600, 60-second exposures, Total of 105 exposures.
