Quote:On another note I've just received an email from Emil with an image of the core (The Trapezium) of M42 and surrounds.....taken with the ASI120MM.....the resolution of this part of the DSO is really quite oustanding and is made up of several hundred 1 second exposures: this suggests that the camera may be very flexible in its use..!
Quote:.....I've commented about this great animation before ZZ, and I think it really demonstrates the merit of the ASI120MM cmos camera.....are you still using Sharpcap with it - if so, I'd like to see you use FireCapture and hear your comments about that capture program after all the work that was done to make it compatible..?!?

Quote:Yes,I am still using Sharpcap. That no way to use 120MM with FireCapture. I try a beta version before,but it shut down when I chose 120MM from menu.
