I am sorry to bring this topic up again, but today I installed NINA to give it a try due to long download times with SGP (I already knew that sharpcap was much faster already…)
I use a Intel compute stick with a USB 3 Hub connected to the ASI1600MM, ZWO Filter wheel + 224MC guide camera.
I really love SGP, but with short exposure times, it takes forever to shoot hundreds of frames due to the time it takes to download them from the camera.
I have used the same setup for both programs, SAME driver and the tests were performed one right after the other. I shot 10 x 2 second frames, first with NINA and then with SGP. Please see videos below:
NINA took 33 seconds to expose and download 10 x 2 second frames, which means an average of 1.3 seconds to download an image.
SGP took 92 seconds to expose and download 10 x 2 second frames, which leaves us with an average of 7,2 seconds per download.
I am up for any testing… I’d like to keep using SGP, but with my need for short subs, this is a big issue. There should be some kind of fix.
