M106 needs help

I captured this on June 8th in Boerne , Texas with an ES127 FCD100 and a QHY183m on a CGX mount and guided with an orion 60mm f4 and a QHY5III290 .

understanding all the files

Hey All . . . so like many of you , I've been having some conflicts with my QHY cameras . I thought that , maybe , if I had an understanding of how the SDK , and the drivers , and the .DLL files related to each other , then I could perhaps , have some semblance of a chance , to put things back , as ...

Re: 183M having random download issues

I tried early last week and late last week to create a help ticket through QHY's website . I tried also to create a user account so that I could post questions on their forum . But I never received confirmation or account set up info . Does anyone know of other ways to contact QHY ? or has anyone fo...

Re: using your main camera for imaging and auto-guiding

I finally got tired of the drift so I bought a guide scope and camera . Often times it didn't matter because SharpCapPro does such a great job of stacking ; but sometimes my targets were too big and too close to the edges .

Re: 183M having random download issues

If I select the camera , as normal , from SharpCap's menu , as "QHY183M" under the QHY Cameras sub menu , then I still have the super slow negative frame count problem . . . but . . . if I select the came...

Re: 183M having random download issues

misery loves company -- I have the same camera and I think the same problem -- I posted in the bug reports forum -- it is not ideal ; but a work around that helped , was to , run the camera in SharpCapPro , but through ASCOM . That allowed my normal download speed . I suspect that the problem is wit...

Re: QHY5III290 good . . .QHY183M bad

There are 2 things under "camera control" : frame rate limit and USB traffic . I adjusted both of these to all different settings ; but they didn't help . I wrote today to QHY . I've seen that others are having similar problems . I'm sure that with patience , everything can be made to work again . T...
