if I saw it then I must know what is it.
if it a meteor, then maybe a portent of the end of 2012

The object you captured does however wobble a lot, especially at the end when it slows down a lot as well. It is also moving VERY slowly. There is also a lot of flickering going on. Perhaps it is some kind of reflection, it does not look like a meteor.

I got the ASI120MC today and was going to give HandyAvi a try tonight and it seems to crash anytime I try to start a capture. Is there anything special you did to get it to work with HandyAvi?

can you email me and give me a snapshot of the error?

I unplugged the ASI120MC and plugged in my SPC900nc and it seems to work fine, but when I plug the ASI120MC back it just quits to desktop (with no error showing).

I've got a bunch of .avis to process and lets just say, I am quite impressed with the results so far. I ended up capturing with K3CCDTools and right now I am transferring a bunch of the OMG HEUG! .avis to my desktop. I did some bench testing with FireCapture this afternoon, but I have some performance issues with it. I had tried FC a year or so ago on my laptop + webcam and had the same type of performance issues. FC is pushing 80% CPU usage, and it just cannot capture on the fly at decent framerates. I loaded up K3CCDTools and it was only running at like 30% CPU load and could capture 30fps on the fly at 1280x960. I'm going to post something on the FC yahoo group to see about the performance issues.
I'll have some images up with the new camera sometime soon. There are some things I need to iron out with the camera, but it appears to be a HUGE improvement over the webcam .

can you change a computer and test again?

I was in a rush this afternoon getting acquainted with the camera before I could get out to do some imaging. I'm wondering if it is some weirdness with XP or something. The same thing happened (immediate crash to desktop) when trying to start wxastrocapture when the ASI120MC was connected.
I have some other questions about the camera I need to ask ya about, but I'll take that to email. May be a bit before I can get to the email because I need to get some sleep soon .
Been processing some of the images and I am quite surprised and pleased with the images I have gotten so far, in what was average to below average seeing tonight.

Sent a error report to HandyAvi.
Hopefully get this sorted.
