Subject: SAC video capture software Sent: Saturday, April 8, 2006 06:08:14 From: Craig J. Kopra (firstname.lastname@example.org) The other night I used my SAV-IVb CCD imager and had recently updated the AstroVideo software that came with the camera to the lastest revision because I was not too happy how it captures AVI files. The video quality of the acquired image was very choppy and inconsistent regardless of how I adjusted the settings. Well, the latest version was not that much better for my XP-based notebook. Are there any other programs you are familiar with that will work with the SAC cameras (and possibly also the Meade LPI) to acquire better AVI files? Best regards, Craig KopraMike here: See the articles "LPI with Mac OS X" and "LPI Under Linux" on the Helpful Information: Astrophotography page. While Windows certainly isn't Mac OS X nor Linux, there might be some info on the pages referenced in the articles that will help.
