I there a way in Sharpcap Pro to 'automatically' take a snapshot of an image without having to manually hit the snapshot button.  Let's say I want Sharpcap to take a snapshot every 10 minutes automatically.  I would like to do this for the transit of Mercury on Monday.

 

Is that possible with Sharpcap?

I believe when you click on start capture button, it brings up options box. from there you can select the number of exposures and the interval.

Capture > Start capture from the main menu allows you to do just that.

How do I get the drop down box with choices that you are showing?  I don't want captures(videos) but snapshots.

Nevermind I figured it out.  I  might of been confused because it looks like they changed a few things in the newer versions so it looks different.
