Hypercam 183C Starting Point Settings HERE

Post by chromus » Thu Apr 05, 2018 1:35 am

Hi All,

I bought the Hypercam 183C and searched all over for some guide on where to start for Sharpcap settings wise for DSO's.

These are based on an f/5.9 scope so may need a little adjustment for slower/faster optics.

Set to FITS with 12/16Bit Colour Space!

To save future peeps the same issue:
Frame/Focus
Exposure 4secs
Gain 2000
Bin 2x2
USB Speed 1

Imaging
Exposure 120Secs
Gain 300
Bin 2x2
USB Speed 1

Lunar
Exposure 1/500th
Gain 100
Bin - Unimportant
USB Speed as fast as you system can handle.
