QHYCCD Standard Software Q&A / CFW3 FW Update Questions
« on: May 26, 2020, 12:32:28 PM »
I have a few questions related to the instructions for updating the FW for CFW3.  Please see the attached annotated PDF file for my questions.

I recently purchased the QHY CFW3-L filter wheel and cannot get it to work in APT 3.84 or NINA with the RS232 4 pin connection.  I have been able to get it to work in SharpCap with the RS232 4 pin connection. 

The issue I have in APT is when I open up the RS232 driver settings it only shows 5 filter slots and I need 7.  If I select CFW2/3 I get a timeout error and can not connect.  If I try just using the ASCOM driver it says it is connected and shows 7 slots, but it will not move the filter wheel.

NINA does not even show any CFW3 driver available to use, so that is as far as I can get with that.

How do I get the CFW3-L to work with APT 3.84? 

On a further note I requested a PDF version of the CFW3-L manual in another forum post several days ago and have not received any response.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Why does the QHY 128C record -1 Offset in the FITS header when the actual offset used is 60? How do I fix this?

Thanks,

Astronomy equipment Discussion board / QHY 128C - ASCOM Gain Setting
« on: April 27, 2020, 01:19:00 AM »
When setting up a custom gain setting in ASCOM driver for the QHY 128C the driver does not allow a value greater than 200 to be typed, but it will allow a value greater than 200 using the slider.  Is this something that will be fixed?  This issue Is present in the last three ASCOM driver releases.  Or am I missing something?

Thanks,

Jennifer

Where can I download PDF manuals for QHY 600M & QHY CFW3-L?  The online (webpage) manuals are missing a lot of information.

Thanks,

Jennifer
