Re: PEMPro on ASI6200 & QHY600

 

Benoit

you could do a quick test now, just take a frame bin1 and a frame bin 2 and look at the file sizes

The reason the limit is being hit is that this is happening on the PEMPro polar alignment step that requires not one, but three images. When only a single image needs to be allocated (e.g. acquiring periodic error data) the memory limit shouldn't be hit.

Hi Benoit,

Ray, I do have a 6200 you can borrow for a few days.
Thanks, I'll contact you offline!

Roland and Marj: It seems that Ray is not interested in fixing this problem, and would rather blame
Microsoft (inappropriately, and incorrectly) for this problem.

A-P -- there is a huge problem with the new CMOS full frame cameras that are on the market. Please help
Ray prioritize fixing this issue and do not listen to his false blame on Microsoft, as Microsoft's framework is not
the
problem, which is clearly apparent with a multitude of other software programs that work fine with the large
frames
produced by the camera.

If Ray needs a friend, I would suggest he reaches out to Dale, whome has done a good job in NINA with
supporting the camera, instead of blaming Microsoft.

Bitmaps, the class in .Net Framework, is not the same as the low-level bitmaps in windows that I think you
are talking about.

And it's not 30 years old... only about 20 years old, which is why the limit was only 1GB.

Back then 1GB was an impossible amount of graphics memory for a desktop computer. Not at all today! :-)

Hi Brian,

That was the first thing I suggested to Bill when he contacted me privately via email. Bill later said he tried that, but it didn't seem to help. That may be a sign that the camera driver may be downloading full images then binning in software. The reason the limit is being hit is that this is happening on the PEMPro polar alignment step that requires not one, but three images. When only a single image needs to be allocated (e.g. acquiring periodic error data) the memory limit shouldn't be hit.

Roland and Marj: It seems that Ray is not interested in fixing this problem, and would rather blame
Microsoft (inappropriately, and incorrectly) for this problem.

A-P -- there is a huge problem with the new CMOS full frame cameras that are on the market. Please help
Ray prioritize fixing this issue and do not listen to his false blame on Microsoft, as Microsoft's framework is not the
problem, which is clearly apparent with a multitude of other software programs that work fine with the large frames
produced by the camera.

If Ray needs a friend, I would suggest he reaches out to Dale, whome has done a good job in NINA with
supporting the camera, instead of blaming Microsoft.

Bitmaps, the class in .Net Framework, is not the same as the low-level bitmaps in windows that I think you
are talking about.

And it's not 30 years old... only about 20 years old, which is why the limit was only 1GB.

Back then 1GB was an impossible amount of graphics memory for a desktop computer. Not at all today! :-)

Re: PEMPro on ASI6200 & QHY600

Ray Gralak
 

Hi Brian,

That was the first thing I suggested to Bill when he contacted me privately via email. Bill later said he tried that, but it didn't seem to help. That may be a sign that the camera driver may be downloading full images then binning in software. The reason the limit is being hit is that this is happening on the PEMPro polar alignment step that requires not one, but three images. When only a single image needs to be allocated (e.g. acquiring periodic error data) the memory limit shouldn't be hit.

Is it possible you can just bin it x2 to reduce file size?

short term fix?

Bill, please relax and be respectful. Demanding someone do this or that is not a good way to approach
problems especially on an open board like this.
If you want to vent your anger I would suggest you send messages privately.

Problems can be sometimes difficult to solve but solutions are more easily found when working together.

Best,

Jim

PEMPro is not an Astro-Physics product. We did not develop with the software. I believe it belongs to
another company, no?

Roland and Marj: It seems that Ray is not interested in fixing this problem, and would rather blame
Microsoft (inappropriately, and incorrectly) for this problem.

A-P -- there is a huge problem with the new CMOS full frame cameras that are on the market. Please help
Ray prioritize fixing this issue and do not listen to his false blame on Microsoft, as Microsoft's framework is not the
problem, which is clearly apparent with a multitude of other software programs that work fine with the large frames
produced by the camera.

If Ray needs a friend, I would suggest he reaches out to Dale, whome has done a good job in NINA with
supporting the camera, instead of blaming Microsoft.

-Bill

Bitmaps, the class in .Net Framework, is not the same as the low-level bitmaps in windows that I think you
are talking about.

And it's not 30 years old... only about 20 years old, which is why the limit was only 1GB.

Back then 1GB was an impossible amount of graphics memory for a desktop computer. Not at all today! :-)

Re: PEMPro on ASI6200 & QHY600

 

Is it possible you can just bin it x2 to reduce file size?

short term fix?

Roland and Marj:  It seems that Ray is not interested in fixing this problem, and would rather blame Microsoft (inappropriately, and incorrectly) for this problem.

A-P -- there is a huge problem with the new CMOS full frame cameras that are on the market. Please help Ray prioritize fixing this issue and do not listen to his false blame on Microsoft, as Microsoft's framework is not the problem, which is clearly apparent with a multitude of other software programs that work fine with the large frames produced by the camera.

If Ray needs a friend, I would suggest he reaches out to Dale, whome has done a good job in NINA with supporting the camera, instead of blaming Microsoft.

Bitmaps, the class in .Net Framework, is not the same as the low-level bitmaps in windows that I think you are talking about.

And it's not 30 years old... only about 20 years old, which is why the limit was only 1GB.

Back then 1GB was an impossible amount of graphics memory for a desktop computer. Not at all today! :-)

Re: What are the advantages of the APCC Pro

Peter Bresler
 

I had APCC Pro...never could get a pointing model, and have been using SGP plate solves for months to locate objects. It usually works fine, and I accurately find objects. Since SGP is required for the plate solve pointing model in APCC Pro, it seemed like a duplication, but maybe there would be an advantage if unguided imaging is possible.

How did you find out your position on the wait list ?

I am supposed to be on the wait list for a Stowaway, but I have no idea where I stand. It would be nice to know so I could do some planning.

I'm No. 20.  


Re: PEMPro on ASI6200 & QHY600

Ray Gralak
 

Hi Stuart,

That's a good suggestion and may solve the problem. It depends on how the camera's driver works. Bill said he tried binning but that didn't seem to help which might mean the somewhere a full unbinned image is being downloaded first and then binned in computer memory. I don't know as I don't have one of these cameras to test with.

image ever needs to be in memory at a time. From what you told me the problem with allocating the
Bitmaps doesn't occur until
PEMPro's polar alignment steps that requires three images to be in memory simultaneously. Each image
can use 60M * 4 bytes (240MB),
resulting in 720MB of memory out of the totally available GDI+ memory (1GB). Successful allocation of
those images also assumes that
the 1GB is not so fragmented that the large chunks can be allocated. If the graphics memory cannot be

Is there a possible solution? Maybe, but it may not be a quick and easy fix. It may also require purchasing

camera to test with. Plus, privately and publicly you seem to be demanding that I drop everything I am doing

I told you privately I would look into this, but it is not likely going to be done soon and I can't promise you a

is not acceptable to you then I can refund the money you paid for PEMPro even though you've been using
it for years.

Ray/Bill - can one do this using a sub-frame? I know that when plate solving I can choose whether to use the whole frame or a sub frame. In that case, the file sizes would be quite manageable. But I don't use PEMPro (yet; looking forward to trying it tho).

Re: PEMPro on ASI6200 & QHY600

Ray Gralak
 

Bill,

I can't be sure because I don't have one of those cameras but this issue might not affect PEC acquisition since only one full frame
image ever needs to be in memory at a time. From what you told me the problem with allocating the Bitmaps doesn't occur until
PEMPro's polar alignment steps that requires three images to be in memory simultaneously. Each image can use 60M * 4 bytes (240MB),
resulting in 720MB of memory out of the totally available GDI+ memory (1GB). Successful allocation of those images also assumes that
the 1GB is not so fragmented that the large chunks can be allocated. If the graphics memory cannot be allocated you will get the
error message you have reported.

Is there a possible solution? Maybe, but it may not be a quick and easy fix. It may also require purchasing or borrowing a $5K
camera to test with. Plus, privately and publicly you seem to be demanding that I drop everything I am doing to perform an immediate
fix for a camera that just came out that is causing an unexpected problem for which there may not be an easy fix.

I told you privately I would look into this, but it is not likely going to be done soon and I can't promise you a solution. If that
is not acceptable to you then I can refund the money you paid for PEMPro even though you've been using it for years.

Best regards,

Bitmaps, the class in .Net Framework, is not the same as the low-level bitmaps in windows that I think you are
talking about.

And it's not 30 years old... only about 20 years old, which is why the limit was only 1GB.

Back then 1GB was an impossible amount of graphics memory for a desktop computer. Not at all today! :-)

Bill,

The problem is that the .NET framework cannot allocate enough memory with a camera with that many pixels.

It could be fixed by Microsoft increasing the .NET Framework GDI+ memory limit above 1GB (not likely).

Or, you could use a cheap webcam instead of a 60 megapixel camera.

Re: Mach2 User Manual

Dominique Durand
 

Hi Rick,
Happy for you that you feast with your Mach2 and I am only more impatient to receive mine. Wayne and Terri who received their Mach2 at the beginning of March had N ° 14 and N ° 15, do you know what is the N ° of your Mach2?
I am personally used to the Mach1 (I had two until 11/2019) and as I also have an Eagle pier I confirm that this tripod is sublime and very effective. With a Mach2 it should make a perfect whole, as it does with the Mach1.
Good sky to you ... and cloudless.

Re: PEMPro on ASI6200 & QHY600

Bill Long
 

Roland and Marj:  It seems that Ray is not interested in fixing this problem, and would rather blame Microsoft (inappropriately, and incorrectly) for this problem.

A-P -- there is a huge problem with the new CMOS full frame cameras that are on the market. Please help Ray prioritize fixing this issue and do not listen to his false blame on Microsoft, as Microsoft's framework is not the problem, which is clearly apparent with a multitude of other software programs that work fine with the large frames produced by the camera.

If Ray needs a friend, I would suggest he reaches out to Dale, whome has done a good job in NINA with supporting the camera, instead of blaming Microsoft.

Bitmaps, the class in .Net Framework, is not the same as the low-level bitmaps in windows that I think you are talking about.

And it's not 30 years old... only about 20 years old, which is why the limit was only 1GB.

Back then 1GB was an impossible amount of graphics memory for a desktop computer. Not at all today! :-)

The problem IS NOT on the .Net Framework, Ray. The camera works perfectly fine with other software that uses
the same framework.

Bitmaps... which PEMPro uses, should be suspect. Why the hell does PEMPro rely on bitmap tech? Thats like 30

Bill,

The problem is that the .NET framework cannot allocate enough memory with a camera with that many pixels.

It could be fixed by Microsoft increasing the .NET Framework GDI+ memory limit above 1GB (not likely).

Or, you could use a cheap webcam instead of a 60 megapixel camera.
