Hi,

On lots of brands of camera, it's possible to ask whether the camera has finished the exposure and then fetch the new image once you know the exposure is complete. If you end up spending too long (much longer than expected) waiting for the exposure to complete you can take steps to reset the exposure or reset the camera and keep things going. Unfortunately this isn't possible with the current way that the qhy SDK works, since there is no way to ask if the current frame is complete yet. Hopefully there will be a new update to the SDK in the coming weeks or months that will enable me to add this sort of safety net for the qhy cameras which would mean that they would recover much more gracefully from an occasional failed frame.

Cheers, Robin
