Hi,

please can you try the following to see what information SharpCap is getting from the SDK:

SharpCap 3.3, go to the settings and enable additional logging of camera hardware communication in the 'Logging' tab.

Once you have made that change, open the camera. Once it opens, close it again fairly quickly (otherwise the log will be very very large!).

If you then look through the log you should see entries about SharpCap asking the SDK what the gain range is - like the ones below:

Code: Select all

Verbose	17:40:48.296478	#1 	Camera : SharpCap.Cameras.QHY.Camera.GetControlMinMaxStep :: Starting GetControlMinMaxStep(CONTROL_GAIN)
Verbose	17:40:48.296478	#1 	Camera : SharpCap.Cameras.QHY.Camera.GetControlMinMaxStep :: Completed (returned (0, 51, 1)) GetControlMinMaxStep(CONTROL_GAIN)
On the camera I tested with, the gain range is 0->51.

You can do the same in 3.2, but the controls over the logging are in a different place (bottom of first page of settings) and are less granular. The log is a bit less readable too.
