Re: Sensor Analysis on QHY165C

Greg,

If you can make the sharpcap patch available that I can access, I will give the same setup a try for my qhy165c. In the meantime, I will try downloading the same from the their website.

Thanks,
Bryan

Re: Sensor Analysis on QHY165C

Regarding thermal control, if I run EZCap_QT and let it do thermal control, everything works correctly. But you need to be careful that EZCap_QT has the rhermal control. I found for example if I touch the thermal control in SharpCap, it overrides EZCap_QT and goes back to being broken. So the last t...

Re: Sensor Analysis on QHY165C

I thought I would check back about the update you wrote about. Is there an update to SharpCap with the change you made to the gain so it goes to 100 when set to 255 for my QHY165C? I downloaded 3.2 beta, and the first attempt seemed to work in that I got the green "x" in a line as expected. But then...

Re: Sensor Analysis on QHY165C

I will get in touch with the folks at QHY to ask them about the power level 255 question and verify that the SDK reports gains between 0 and 255 to see if that is what was expected. You said you could try limiting the gain to 100 if the max is 255 and we will see what comes out as the result (we may...

Re: Sensor Analysis on QHY165C

I wonder if there is a firmware update I could get for my QHY. I am not even sure if I can update firmware. I purchased the camera in December, 2017. The moment I set the cooling to auto, SharpCap sets the power level to 255 and for some reason, that causes the camera to turn off cooling all togethe...

Re: Sensor Analysis on QHY165C

I am in 16 bit raw mode The gain range is 0-255 The Offset range is 0-2047 Note that for this attempt, my QHY165C is not on my telescope but simply on the bench. Note also that a few months ago, I did manage to get a run of this to work, but the data was not correct. When I say work, I mean I did no...

Sensor Analysis on QHY165C

I am using SharpCap Pro 3.1 and trying to use the sensor analysis with my QHY165C. The problem I have is when I run the Sensor Analysis, it quickly reports "The exposure time required is shorter than the minimum exposure value - Sensor Analysis Stopped! Restart with lower light levels". But, I have ...
