    Default SharpCap SensorAnalysis



    If this is the wrong place please move -

    Has anyone used the sensor analysis feature in SC?
    With all the "interesting" Weather there may be time to run it & I'm curious as to the results.

    Oh, it is useful.... My patience (or lack thereof) is similar to yours
    Provides a great data point on my ability to do it.

    I saw a tutorial on it - luckily there were a lot of cuts while the program did it's thinking. Criminy the tutorial is over 30 min. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgX9XDZlTfw

    If anyone wants to see what SC says about it.

    Apologies Yobbo - missed the the question.
    I'm not familiar with CCD inspector - it is supposed to check field flatness among other things?
    The sensor analysis in SharpCap measures camera chip characteristics to use in the "Smart Histogram"
    to provide optimal gain/exposure times for current sky conditions.

    Here is the description from the SharpCap web site:
