Sensor Analysis Mono Setting

Post by carlosgib » Sun Nov 10, 2019 10:59 am

Hi guys, I have a ZWO 1600mm Pro, 12bit ADC, I wanted to do a test using Sensor Analysis but in the setting under Capture Format and Area,,
I believe that I need to use MONO12 however the options are MONO8 or 16. Am i missing something at this stage??

That particular camera has a 12 bit sensor (other ZWO models might have 14 or even 16 bit sensors) but SharpCap doesn't know which until it's done the sensor analysis, so it shows a generic option between 8-bit and 16-bit (even though they might not be a full 16 bits of data)

Hope this helps, Robin
