ZWO software for it's own camera

Postby souls33k3r » Wed Jan 25, 2017 1:11 pm

Was hoping and wondering if there is a likely chance for ZWO to be creating their own software for their camera. More interested in the DSO capturing side of things. A software to capture, stack, focus, dither, plate solve and cooling supported like other big brands do and ship it out for free with their cameras.

Thanks

Nebulosity already has (nearly) everything. I use it for DS imaging since Meade DSI III Pro times ;)

Software development isn't quick nor cheap. If you rush it you will get a terrible UI and unstable operations.

Yes I thought so too but the latest Neb 4 won't run with my ZWO ASI174. Apparently a fix is due from Stark??

SharpCaps new annual license fee.?

A bit of bad news here SharpCap will be charging a annual fee. I started using SharpCap with my first ZWO camera and it seems to work very well, SharpCap was free but now SharpCap wants to charge an annual fee for a license. Now maybe a one time reasonable license purchase would work like some of the other camera control programs... but a continuous annual fee.. I don't think so that will definitely not work for me.. I'm not paying a annual fee. I probably would pay a one-time license fee because I like the program. I will be moving on to another camera control program if this happens.

I prefer not to get my finances involved with a monthly or annual fee license for a camera control program especially with foreign currency.. Why don't SharpCap also offer the option to purchase a one time license.. like some of the other camera control programs.?
