At long last, SharpCap 1.4 has moved from Beta into a full release. Sorry for the long delay - been busy recently with non-Astro stuff.

Here's what is new in 1.4 :
  • Long exposure support for Basler cameras (unlimited exposure time)
  • Parallel port control support for LX modified webcams
  • Automatic USB serial port selection for LX modified webcams - chooses highest numbered serial port.
  • Frame progress bar shown for all cameras in LX mode to show how far through the current frame you are
  • Single frame capture support for all supported cameras types
  • Multiple output formats supported  - SER, PNG, FITS for non-webcam cameras
  • Experimental support for any camera with an ASCOM driver
  • Improved capture file handling - formats that produce multiple files like PNG and FITS create a folder and save them into it
  • Many bug fixes
Get the release build of 1.4 from the downloads page.
