I am trying to set up my equipment for the first time.
Everything was powered. Main camera, guide camera, mount. I had EQMOD on and set it up. I had polar aligned the mount in daylight with an app.
I powered up SharpCap. I went to "cameras" on the toolbar.
It sees both of my cameras, but the screen just shows black as it says it is taking exposures. I selected one camera and then the other. What step am I missing? The lens cap is off. It is pointing at the sky. The screen is black.
I expected to have difficulty focusing these cameras for the first time because I have never done it. But I didn't expect a black screen. Guess I missed the "start" button. I tried a different program, "Nina". It doesn't see anything either so I am not doing something basic.
A nice, starry night wasted, and there aren't many.
What is required to see stars on your laptop screen?
