I am a new user & am trying to find my way around the software.
I have setup user & equipment profiles and am trying out the Mosaic & Framing Wizard.
So my equipment is setup as such:
Canon EOS camera - pixel size 3.7, image size 6000 x 4000
Telescope FL 2350mm
So pixel scale is 0.325.
I fetch M31 at 3.0deg FOV
I tile the entire image, which creates 70 tiles total with overall image size of 36600 x 34600
I create the sequence with SUCCESS.
Now with the sequence window open I enter an EXPOSURE value of 10m in Event 1 of M31-1
I then right click M31-1 in the target list & choose ‘copy events to’ from the dropdown menu & then select all the other targets from the newly opened window i.e. M31-2 to M31-70 and click OK.
The process of copying starts but after a while a dialog appears on the screen saying that SGP has stopped working and needs to close, see attached Log2.txt file: Log2.txt (71.4 KB)
I have also attached the 2 associated Events from Windows Events Viewer: Event2-1.txt (1.5 KB) & Event2-2.txt (701 Bytes)
Next I tried the process over again, exactly the same mosaic setup, again, added a 10m exposure entry in Event 1 of M31-1 but this time in the sequence window I copied events from M31-1 to M31-2 & it did succeed but did seem to take about a minute to do.
I then attempted to copy the events from M31-2 over to all the remaining targets i.e. M31-3 to M31-70, once again after what seemed like ages and with the progress bar around two thirds done, it failed, same message and SGP shutdown. here is the log from this attempt: Log3.txt (72.0 KB) along with the events from Windows Event Viewer: Event3-1.txt (1.5 KB) & Event3-2.txt (701 Bytes)
I do keep seeing the same error in the SGP log of: ’GlobalExceptionHandler caught : Error creating window handle.'
My laptop is running latest version of Win10, has 8GB RAM & i5 processor
Please can someone point me in the direction as to solve this issue.
Pretty sure it’s a dotnet thing but from what I have found on the net, from Win8.1 onwards, dotnet is built in to Windows.
