Robin, I tried Live Stacking at full resolution in both RAW8 & RAW16 with 2x2 binning and it didn't freeze. It's cloudy so it wasn't a "real" test as no stars could be found so I just left the lens cap on but it does look like switching to 2x2 binning did the trick. Out of curiosity, would it ever complete if left at 1x1 binning? Is it really just CPU bound at that point? Thanks. Tom
Hi Robin, The freeze happens on both my Compute Stick and a T100TA. I used Task Manager and confirmed there's ~500MB of free RAM when it freezes. Both devices have plenty of disk space available and I also have over 2 GB of swap space on the Compute Stick. Compute Stick Specs 1.44 GHz Intel Atom x5-Z8300 Quad-Core, 2GB of DDR3L RAM 32GB of Onboard eMMC Flash Storage The T100TA Specs Intel Quad-Core Z3735 1.33 GHz Processor with 2GB RAM. 32 GB Solid State Storage in tablet Let me know if there's anything I can do to help test or capture more details. Thanks, Tom
I am using Version 2.9.3032.0 and ran into issues of freezing last night when trying to live stack using an ASI1600MC-C. Just running the program the image is fine at all resolutions but when trying to live stack the application would become unresponsive. I also tried lower resolutions and that did work once or twice but none of the higher resolutions worked. This is running with the camera connected to a 2nd generation compute stick running Windows 10 with a 3 foot USB 3 cable to a USB 3 hub to the compute stick. The Anker hub can run either powered or non-powered, currently non. I tried in both RAW8 and other modes but didn't seem to have any effect. Using an 800x600 capture area did work but I would get error messages that the frame rate was too high. This happened even though the exposure was set to 8 seconds. I did note that the stacking indicated it was taking a bit over 6000ms to complete. You can see the complete setup over on CN if that's of any help. http://www.cloudynights.com/topic/561613-my-compute-stick-setup-for-eaa-bii/ I just did some daylight testing and it froze again at full resolution. The other thing of note is that the only way to end the program after it's frozen is via the task manager. Using RAW8 at these resolutions (800x600, 1600x1200, 2328x1760, 2640x2640) it ran but, as expected, couldn't stack any frames due to no stars. At 3520x3520 it froze. Is this possibly a physical memory or architecture issue? It does work when running on my Windows 10 x64 laptop w/4GB RAM as opposed to the compute stick w/2GB RAM running Windows 10 x32.
