QHY 174 M/GPS and Thermal Controls

Post by smithn00 » Wed Jan 23, 2019 7:23 pm

The controls don't seem to be active. It says the current temp at startup is 27.8C. I am very sure the temp is around 7C. Is my camera faulty?

There seems to be possibly some dependency on the order that you adjust the controls for the QHY camera – try setting the cooler power to auto and then adjusting the target temperature after the cooler power has been set – that usually seems enough to kick the cooler mechanism of the camera properly into life.

There is a new version of the QHY SDK in testing at the moment which will hopefully start to fix some of these glitches. Unfortunately it's not ready for release to end-users just yet.

Cheers, Robin
