many thanks for your answer!

1) is it be possible to include that in an ASCOM driver update? ... and ist that planned?
It could help to minimize thermal stress on the chip!

2) you mentioned software which is capable to do this. Which software would you recommend?


QHYCCD SDK FOR WINDOWS / Autoexposure and QHY camera
« on: May 02, 2021, 04:16:54 AM »
Hi everyone,

using the new QHY 5-III-485C camera for allsky purposes I am missing the possibility to use autoexposure feature with the QHY camera in SharpCap. Is there a way to activate or add this feature?

Thanks for replies!

Hi everyone,

using a QHY 5-iii-485C as Allsky camera with the allsky lens (f=2.5mm?) supplied by QHY, have I to worry about the sun damaging the chip or electronics of the camera when I am using it during daytime when the sun is present. Maybe the sun dies develop to much heat on the chip?

Thanks for replies,

It should be possible for QHY developers to answer this question in detail...

« on: April 04, 2021, 05:32:24 AM »

is the backfocus for the QHY600-L the same as for the the Pro and PH models?

I did not find any info on the mechanical setup of the QHY600-L in the current manual of the QHY600!


QHYCCD Standard Software Q&A / QHY600 and MaxIm with ASCOM-driver
« on: April 04, 2021, 05:28:41 AM »

I have been using MaxIm DL Pro 6.18 with different SBIG cameras for quite a long time.
Now I use a QHY600 and MaxIm with ASCOM-driver and see a different behavoir when looking to the cooling:

1) When the camera is cooled (e.g. to -10 deg C at 50% cooling power) and I start "warm up" the cooling power drops SUDDENLY to zero instead of SLOWLY warming up. BTW: the behavior in SharpCap is slower as expected when warming up. Is this an error in the ASCOM driver?

2) Sometimes when the chip is still at ambiant temperature (e.g. at 15 deg C), MaxIm indicates 0 deg C when the cooling is still OFF. Another error in the ASCOM driver?

Software setup is: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit, ASCOM Platform 6.5 SP1 RC1 (build
QHY driver file versions / ...13

Please comment on the ASCOM driver errors in MaxIm...

what is the difference in specs of the SONY IMX455 chip types: ?Consumer? vs. ?Professional??
I was told that the difference could be in the admitted temperature range.
Where can I find more information from SONY on that?

How does the QHY600M deal with possible humidity inside the chip chamber?
Is there any possibility to use a decissant?
