Hi Ivo,
I have been using APt full version for a couple of months and I really like the features your building into it. I have a small problem which I think is probably more annoying than anything else, however it does add some amp glow into longer exposures. I use a Canon 1100D and my OS is windows XP. The little red busy light on the bottom right hand side of the camera comes on and stays on whenever the camera is taking an exposure. At first I thought it may be something to do with the mirror lockup feature, however I have it set to virtual and 0 seconds so it should be disabled. I have tried it on all the different versions including the latest 2.32 and it is still the same. I am not sure if I have a setting wrong somewhere that is causing this or not. Hoping you can shed some light on this for me. The red light doesn't come on when I use canon utility. Thanks for your help.

Hi Rex,

It is very strange... I'll investigate and let you know.

Could you send on my support mail the log file
"c:\Users\[Your_User_Name]\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Astro Photography Tool - APT\APT_Camera_1.log"

Hey Ivo,

How do I transfer my registration (now expired) from my son's ex-girlfriend's e-mail to my personal one? My version 2.43 is registered by her e-mail account as I don't have paypal and back then you didn't have a Visa or Mastercard option, so she bough it and I gave her the funds. Unfortunately Sam no longer dates or sees Ally so I now have a challenge!

I have sent you an e-mail address to ask if its simple to transfer ownership from her e-mail id back to me (son has broken up with the lovely lady) so I can renew it under my name and contact details now?

Many thanks, Matthew
