Exposure time counter

<r>Hi, I made some tests with 10 min subs and one small problem is that I cannot know how much exposure time is left if I step off for a moment. So could there be possible to make small visible counter to show what is the status of current exposure? Digicamcontrol by the way works well and I'm very ...

Key word is automation

<r>It works fine alright but keeping "exposing same pixels to same light" is not the wise thing to do. Ok, you get decent results and it kills random noise but no pixel grid noise patterns.

I command you to move (1-5)

<r>Thanks, that "movement magnitude" is what I was looking for. Very good explanation on dithering <E>:)</E><br/> <br/> Software itself cannot know the focal length so how does those move-commands reflect in real life - I mean just overall with decent focal lengths (just as a subjective feeling)?<br...

Very impressive!

<t>Thanks for the awesome software and especially for this astrophotography feature.<br/> <br/> I tested it with D800 and exposure control works perfectly with USB cable. I also tried scripting with PHD (although without mount and active tracking - it's very light in here north so no stars visible u...
