Using Settings for Solar.....

Post by ClaireAstro »

I am trying to ajust the settings in Exposure, Gain and Gamma for my DMK21AU 218 having watched a few tutorials on this as I am a total beginner. Settings were suggested for the surface and the proms which were of course quite different. I cannot get my Gain for example setting below 260 and I am really not sure why... Is Sharpcap pro neccessary to have more functionality or am I perhaps doing something wrong? The exposure and gamma were unable to give me the settings which were suggested ...? Please can someone help?
Thank you

This book by Dave Eagle FRAS is about solar imaging. He uses DMK21 cameras for the book material. A modest book of 44 pages aimed at a beginner and at around £7 printed or Kindle will not break the bank. ... ave&sr=8-1

I have the book, bought it at one of his workshops. An easy read (as are his other titles). Never done any solar - yet.

Good luck.
