Re: ASI 533MC Pro random red lines

Thanks much, Bernd. That confirms why I did not see any of this with my 294 or 533 when I recently tried it @ f/7 with my C11" as I use both darks and dithering with an OAG. When using the hyperstar, there is no good way to dither as guiding can only be done with a guide scope which is not ideal for...

ASI 533MC Pro random red lines

I just purchased the 533MC Pro and it is working fine, especially on my C11" EdgeHD @f/7. However, when I try it using my hyperstar to get f/2, a number of the images (not all) are showing a lot of short red lines (some green) thoughout the image. I did use darks to handle the hot pixels and camera ...

Re: Live Stacking software besides SharpCap

ok- thank you

So, it sounds like SharpCap is currently the only option and no future plans for ZWO to develop or license in a Mac live stacking software. I hope that changes in the future.

Re: Live Stacking software besides SharpCap

Sorry, I was not clear but it sounds like I still got my answer. I have an Ultrastar camera and I use Starlight live which is great. I meant specifically for ZWO cameras but it sounds like Astrotoaster is the option to SharpCap. I seem to see many use both SharpCap to take the image and then use Ast...

Live Stacking software besides SharpCap

Hello

Is there any available (or in the works) of live stacking software other than SharpCap? I prefer Mac software but would use a Windows program.

Thanks
Bruce

Thanks but these are not live stacking and viewing software applications. Even the ZWO website under support makes this distinction.

Same old question.....I think- Live Capture software for MAC

Is there any hope for a Mac native software on the horizon to do live capturing/real-time viewing with the ZWO cameras? It is very frustrating for Mac users to have to try and use SharpCap on Windows to use these cameras for this purpose. Astro Live is not good enough and it is no longer being suppo...

Re: ASI224MC on Mac using Windows 10 was not recognized with

It was not. It was listed as Unspecified and I realized the driver was missing. I just installed it and now it is working. Thank you very much!

Any word on native MAC software to support live stacking?

Since AstroLive is no longer supported, has anyone heard of an option for Mac native software being developed to support ZWO cameras? I am trying Windows 10 Pro using parallels desktop on my Mac but it does not recognize my ASI224MC in either SharpCap or Firecapture.

Re: Capture Failed in Fire Capture running in Parallels

Good to know but I have another problem. I have windows 10 pro on my Mac using parallels desktop but with both Firecapture and SharpCap, the software opens but neither recognize my ASI224MC camera. On a PC, Windows has no trouble in recognizing the cameras. Despite not recognizing the cameras, the U...
