When I select save individual frames  the automatic save file type is PNG, but I would like to save as FITS files.  Even if I select FITS files under output,  the individual frames are still saved as PNG files. I may  be missing something simple, but is there a way to save individual files as FITS files?

Under the "File -> SharpCap -> Settings" tab there is an option for "Preferred Still Format" that you can set to FITS.  Then restart SharpCap for the setting to take effect.

 

Cheers
