Multicamera Support


#1

Hello,
Have you thinked about add the support for multicamera? A lot of people put a dslr over the telescope to have a wide field of view of where they are taking photos. It would be awesome if I can use my ccd and my dslr on the same programm and have a dithering sync. Other programm have this feature so I think it’s possibile to implement.

Thank you,
Matteo Collina


Plans for dual camera use in SGP?
#2

Many of us have asked for this, but multi-camera users are still a relatively small proportion of total users so it hasn’t been a high priority, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it will be implemented one day.

In the meantime, I find that if I use a small dither with the CCD on my main scope, I don’t see it in my piggy-backed DSLR because of the difference in image scale, particularly if you are using the DSLR data for lower resolution color only.

Yes, there have been a couple of threads about this. There has been a suggestion that this be done as a feature to the main program or as a paid add-on. I would be fine with either but an add-on (paid or not) makes more sense to me. I have three scopes on one mount and two cameras plus optionally a DSLR on the third scope so I would love to see this and would have no problem paying extra.

Of course, I am sure nothing will happen until 2.4 has been rendered stable as the SGP guys have their plates full right now.

Great idea.

HI chaps
Just noticed this post as I have just posted a similar one. I assume from the replies that SGP does not allow multi ccd`s at the moment, not even perhaps running more than one instant of SGP?.

Hoping for this as well.

Just FYI, If the request you are responding to is already in a “versioned category” (for example, this one is in SGPro->2.5 Features), there is no need to continue voting. It has been accepted and you can expect to see it in that version.

That said, we certainly appreciate the participation.
