Re: Using Seeing Monitor as a sky quality meter

Hi Robin, Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try it out the next time. Yes, I want to monitor the seeing conditions during the night during my DSO imaging session. Since the PoleMaster is only used at the beginning of the imaging session, it would be useful for it to monitor the seeing conditions durin...

Using Seeing Monitor as a sky quality meter

Hi Robin, Can the seeing monitor be used as a sky quality meter? My PoleMaster is mounted on the saddle, and so it points to the area where my imaging scope is pointing. I then connect the PoleMaster to SC and place the Seeing Monitor rectangle in the region where I'm imaging. I monitor the histogra...

Re: Problems with PoleMaster

Hi, Build 6137 has yet another version of the qhy SDK – unfortunately since I don't have a pole master camera I can't test this before I release a new build, but it sounds possible that the camera has been broken again in the latest SDK version. Try going back to previous version (6128?) and see if...

Re: Problems with PoleMaster

Hi, Another user has suggested in this thread – https://forums.sharpcap.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=2000&p=10402#p10402 – that reducing the resolution may help work around the issue. Not perfect, but if it gets things working then it may well be good enough. Cheers, Robin I’ve not seen any freezing ...

Re: Problems with PoleMaster

Problem fixed with the Sep 30th update of SC running the latest Polemaster driver as long as I unplug and then reinsert the usb of the Polemaster every time I connect to SC. Hi I don't see what you see. PoleMaster with qhyccd.dll bundled with Sharpcap 3.2.6117 works: no saturation at all regardless...

Re: Problems with PoleMaster

I received a message this morning that QHY has fixed the saturation problem and will be posting a new SDK soon.

Re: Problems with PoleMaster

Hi, Odd that different people are getting different results here. I do wonder if there are different revisions of the pole master camera that might react slightly differently to the new SDK. Don't worry about the message to adjust the USB speed – that just appears when opening the camera to remind ...

Re: Problems with PoleMaster

Hi Robin, Good news, I updated to 3.2.6086 this morning and now the Polemaster camera appears operate correctly. However, I still get the "Adjust the USB Traffic control to achieve optimum results" and the frame rate seems to be limited a 4 fps regardless of the Exposure/Gain setting combination. m...

Re: Problems with PoleMaster

I've opened a ticket using their ticket system instead. But the qhy ticket system hasn't sent me a ticker number.

Let's see whether they will actually get back to me.
