Re: QHY168C Problems-Changing ROI Changes Gain and White Balance

Robin,
I am wondering if a local vendor needs to lend you a camera. We've been at this for months, and there is still a problem. I admit it doesn't happen as frequent now, which I don't know is worse.
Again, the camera is cooling at full power but the settings show power of 40 (15%).

Re: QHY168C Problems-Changing ROI Changes Gain and White Balance

I am not moving the ROI around. I just chance the resolution selection. I do that when focusing with the focus assist and bahtinov mask because the frames are large and it slows the laptop down.

Re: QHY168C Problems-Changing ROI Changes Gain and White Balance

Thanks again Robin. I do not know if these problems are related to the SDK or what. It seems we are nearing finding solutions to the problems. Now, when I change the ROI, the cooler goes to max. Seems loading profiles is OK. I hate to bug you with all these problems, it does make it less stressful w...

Re: QHY168C Problems-Changing ROI Changes Gain and White Balance

Robin,
I downloaded the latest SDK, and it seems that the cooler still changes to max after loading a profile. I hear the fan slowing down and the temp drops fast . If I movethe slider a little it fixes it.

Re: QHY168C Problems-Changing ROI Changes Gain and White Balance

Looks like they pushed out a new SDK and fixed incorrect gain setting. Will have to check to see if this fixes things.

Re: QHY168C Problems-Changing ROI Changes Gain and White Balance

Robin, Yes, that is what it looks like, however, when the gain is set to max, the preview images are grayish and noisy. Strangely the setting on SC shows 150. But when I move the slider just a little back and forth, the proper gain is actually being used. It is also clear from the histogram that the...

Re: QHY168C Problems-Changing ROI Changes Gain and White Balance

Robin, I am at my friends place now, testing his QHY163C. I select the camera and SC loads the previous settings when SC closed correctly. However, when loading a profile, the cooler runs on a high power setting and the gain is set much higher, even though the profiles settings are lower. Moving the...

Re: QHY168C Problems-Changing ROI Changes Gain and White Balance

Thanks Robin, That seems to fix the problem. However, it seems a new problem has come up, similar to the original problems but related to the cooler. When it runs at a high percentage, the temperature drops fast and I can hear the fan slowing a bit. When I first select the camera in SC, it is fine a...

Re: QHY168C Problems-Changing ROI Changes Gain and White Balance

Robin,
Here is the new logging file where I did a similar procedure as above. Again, at one point I try to type in the number 4 for the gain, and it stays at 30. I actually have to move the slider first and then I can type in the number. Same with the white balance.

Thanks

Re: QHY168C Problems-Changing ROI Changes Gain and White Balance

Thanks Robin,
I'll check it out when I get home in a few hours. Also, later this week I'll visit my friend who I've been helping setting up his astronomy imaging gear, and will record the logging on his system too for you.
