Sensor Analysis QHY128C

Post by Haggish59 » Wed Apr 04, 2018 5:55 am

Hi,
When i connect to my QHY128c with ascom driver to take a sensor analysis I can only choose mono, not RAW16 which I have understood that I should choose. I use the latest SharpCap and drivers

Hi,

unfortunately ASCOM does not provide a way to choose easily between the different colour options available on a camera and some drivers report MONO for colour cameras in RAW mode. Your options are

1) Don't use the ASCOM driver, use the built in SharpCap support for the QHY cameras - that should give you full options

2) You should have a 'Debayer Preview' control available under ASCOM - work through the 'Force ????' options in that to find the one that gives correct colours on your camera - that forces SharpCap to treat the camera as RAW even though it is reporting itself as MONO. Once you have done that, run the sensor analysis. As a check make sure that the histogram you see in the sensor analysis UI only has a single peak (not two).

cheers,

Robin
