Re: Orion Starshoot AutoGuider

Hi,

I'm afraid I can't do team viewer sessions, but if you post screenshots of your camera's menu and then of the error that you see that may help work out what is going wrong.

Cheers, Robin

Re: Issues with QHY168C

Hi, I've seen similar problems in the past with qhy and other brand cameras and they are caused by trying to push the USB settings too far. For some reason the problem often occurs with longer exposures than were shorter exposures. I would suggest the normal tricks for troubleshooting USB issues to ...

Re: QHY168C Camera Exposure Time Not Correct

Hi, Just tested with the couple of qhy cameras that I have here and as far as I can tell with my cameras all the exposure times are accurate, so it sounds like this is a issue specific to your model. Please make sure you have the very latest SharpCap which has the very latest qhy SDK and it just in ...

Re: Error on Start-up - Focuser

Hi, In that error report it looks like the focuser has connected correctly but has triggered an error when you try to use the focus scan functionality. It looks like you may have a focus position of very close to 0 which may be part of the problem – normally you would expect to start with the focus ...

Re: Starlight Xpress SXVR-694C

Hi, My usual test to see very quickly if a camera is responding correctly is just to check that I can get it to give me a black image when the camera is completely covered and no light is getting in and a white or grey image when I uncover the sensor. 2nd test is that the exposure control does somet...

Re: Orion Starshoot AutoGuider

Hi, I would suggest that the best thing to try here will be to uninstall and then reinstall the Ascom drivers for the star shoot camera. The error message that you are receiving would tend to indicate that Ascom thinks that the drivers are there and ready to be used but the Windows system has no kno...

Re: Issues with QHY168C

Hi, Glad to hear that the camera is now operational and that the cooling works properly with this version of the SDK I will keep and I out for the issues you are noticing when changing resolution colour space (there is yet another version of the SDK that has been released by qhy in the last few days...

Re: Error on Start-up - Focuser

Hi,

Please can you share your SharpCap log captured after you have tried to connect to the focuser. You can find the SharpCap blog by looking in the help menu and choosing 'show log'.

Re: My first live stacks.

Hi, CCD cameras are not an automatic upgrade from CMOS cameras these days and don't be suckered in by suggestions to take longer sub-exposures as the only way to improve image quality. The use of long sub exposures by CCD images is not an advantageous thing in and of itself – it is a response to the...
