Re: qhy 168c 0 wonky values

I will check this soon. Is there a specific gain and offset you want me to use? And do you want me to check the levels for a few exposure values between 0.47 to 0.59 seconds? I want to be sure I run the specific test that will be most meaningful. And I will try these using SharpCap and using APT. On...

Re: qhy 168c 0 wonky values

Hey Robin, I have attached one of many log files I had. I did not see any reference to "analysis" in the more recent log files, so I am not certain but I think this log file is the one you want. I did a lot of things as I was working my way through SharpCap and I am not certain this is the...

Re: qhy 168c 0 wonky values

I tried a few things last night with some results to report: All three gain sliders report 0-4027 - the same as the ASCOM driver When I ran sensor analysis I kept getting first one message "The exposure time required is getting quite long". I seemed to get this often. Then after an extende...

Re: qhy 168c 0 wonky values

Robin: Having re-read this entire thread with coffee in my system, I see you said the gain in previous versions of SharpCap was a digital gain, so all adjustments I made or sensor analysis made were to the digital gain rather than the the true (RGB) gains. Now that makes sense. This also helps me be...

Re: qhy 168c 0 wonky values

I was unable to get to my telescope tonight, but tomorrow night looks a lot better. Just so I am clear on how to use the new release, I understand you now have 3 separate gain adjustments, but I am not clear on how that makes the sensor analysis or the smart histogram work correctly for my QHY165C. ...

Re: qhy 168c 0 wonky values

Thank you for taking the time to work on this! I will give this a try today or tomorrow. Last night, I used sensor analysis with the most recent public version of SharpCap, and noticed SharpCap would start the offset at a value of 204. But when the offset is higher than around 65 on your slider, it ...

Re: qhy 168c 0 wonky values

Hey Robin, I installed and started using your newest SharpCap with my QHY165C. You may recall a year or so ago, we worked on figuring out issues with the sensor analysis for my camera. It appears by your remark in this message that you did add a fix for my camera? Anyway, I will give the newest vers...

Re: QHY168c Gain Scaling question

Robin:

Perhaps something I could set in a config file, on the command line or through your scripting tool. Looking forward to using SharpCap to its fullest!

Thanks

Re: QHY168c Gain Scaling question

Robin: I installed the latest version of SharpCap to try with my 165C camera. I found that my sensor analysis came much closer to working than anything previously. I noticed the gain and offset ranges on the SharpCap sliders are more in line with what I see from the native QHY drivers, whereas befor...
