Re: Qhy8l temperature control

Chris Windows "snip" whatever that may be Snipping Tool comes as part of Windows, with the latest upgrades it is now morphing into Snip & Sketch . Looks to me like QHY might be dropping older cameras from their SDK. I remember it happening to me with a Nebulosity upgrade when Canon dropped the 350D ...

The only camera control I see ...

Re: Flats - Darks - Fits - PNG - Live Stack

Tim Dark Flat is in lieu of a bias frame. Is that correct? I think so. As a relative beginner I have steered clear of dark flats. To me it seemed an unnecessary complication. Get this wrong and one could end up subtracting the bias twice (not good). Read this (all of it) https://www.cloudynights.com...
