Re: Anybody want to share their unprocessed source AVIs

We used Dropbox successfully at my work for sharing huge ultrasonic data files with a collaborator. The trick is that someone needs to have a business account to handle the larger file sizes. But it sounds as though Jack has that part handled.

Re: Flare today 2019_05_15

OK. It ain't great and I had to cheat a bit here and there, but the main thing that got me was how fast this thing is for its size. Still, low resolution data is better than no data at all. The times are my best approximation of the middle of the capture sequence. Capture was under control of Genika...

Flare today 2019_05_15

Did anyone catch the flare at 19:20 UTC today? I was running a camera, but not paying much attention to it. The seeing was downright horrible. Often the sunspot was just a blur on my screen. I did manage to get some captures throughout the event, though several frames lost detail to the intense brig...

This s quite a good start. On top of that the rotation on the solar sphere is visible.
What is the parameter you didn't find ?

Re: First attempt at an animation

Very nice animation. Is the Genika Astro better then the "FireCapture" software? I plan to buy the SSM monitor in the near feature and I don't know if I buy the Genika Astro software together. The Genika Astro software was developed by the maker of the SSM, so I wanted to use that. I have tried Fir...

Lunt LST80Ha TeleVue 5x Powermate ZWO ASI174MM Still using SharpCap for the acquisition. I couldn't find the SSM threshold setting in Genika Astro. I know it's there. I have found it before, but it is in an obscure tab somewhere that I was simply unable to locate. I gave up and reverted to SharpCap....
