QHYCCD SDK FOR WINDOWS / Re: ONE page for drivers etc.
« on: March 02, 2021, 12:10:18 PM »
No used SharpCap 3.2.6480 (64 bit) and re-installed drivers from QHYCCD_Win_AllInOne.21.02.20.13 ... just the driver.

Back to normal:

1. beautiful colours on 11M and almost dark pointing it to neighbours roof
2. 47M is now very clear but MONO - I never seen Colours on 47M ... ever yet

 ;D ;D ;D

This camera is becoming a farce now!

The main problem is in the title of this thread!!!

Installed QHYCCD_Win_AllInOne.21.02.26.18 and nothing works ...

Seriously thinking of sending it back ...

Hi QinXiaoXu,

Don't worry,this update will not lock 47MP mode for QHY294C,you still can update it to QHY294PROC.

How can I upgrade my 294C to 294PROC ?
Is there a firmware Update and instructions how to do that ?

thanks and best regards
Bernd

Hello,

      ...  The only different is it has no 47MP mode...

Best regards,

Hi
Do you mean owners of the QHY294c which have the Firmware modified as QHY294PROC will 'not' be able to use the 47M ?

I hope not, as I 'specifically' purchased this camera 'knowing' - as you stated on your website - that it can be unlocked to be able to use the 47M.

In my case as per many others I guess, the 'main' reason I purchased it [very much being debt for it] was because of the Unlock and be able to use it with short 'and' long focal length telescopes I have.

I sincerely hope you get it to work 'very' soon.

Regards
M

QinXiaoXu,
Anything new to report concerning updates to the driver and SDK for the QHY294C?

Peter

I have abandoned it for now - They are probably doing it now - I personally guess a couple of weeks !

Bad weather any way ...

1. should I leave RGB as is - not doing any adjustment? I used a t-shirt 3-4 times folded over lens + led-light - I know it is blueish generally speaking and I see I could do Flats at ~135ms
2. then I thought lets try at 2x2 - just curious - I like experimenting and see images below 1x1 and 2x2
I could do flats with RGB spot on at ~33ms - Que?
I thought whether I leave it at 1x1 or 2x2 it should not change anything as it is NOT unlocked.

I am confused now!!

Still need some help on the RGB bit - if possible - thanks

Mauro


... and result is - respectively 1x1 and then 2x2:

I was just trying to do Flats in-house by using the 'pleb-way' - because of many constrictions I have to try and enjoy this hobby and my limited knowledge!

i.e. just focus on something near the house that is at least 20x FL of camera-telescope setup as suggested by other more expert amateur.

I have a nice chimney at about 25m [AR152 988 x0.8 = ~16m at least. I even tuned focuser a bit more inward remembering my older 178c/m used to focus at around 60mm [on the focuser] - so I set it there and should be very near focus + marked orientation of camera - in case I move it.

Anyway, I am not sure of two things - I have not done any Deep Sky in the last 2-3 years and forgot everything + when I do it, i am not at it for many days...

Just adding something else ...I understand this is a working progress ... I am still waiting to get ONE night - at least 4 clear sky hours in northern UK ... pfff

Robin [SharpCap] confirms Sensor Analysis is weird:

I have written a program for LIGHT frame calibration specifically for astrophotographers that wish to learn how to use BIAS, FLATs, DARKs and DARKFLAT frames.  Right now I have a google group set-up for my users...
https://groups.google.com/g/calights

Soon I hope to have a website so that it is easier for potential users to find my app

Thanks!

QinXiaoXu,
I did some testing with https://www.qhyccd.com/file/repository/latestSoftAndDirver/Driver/QHYCamerasDriver20201127.zip

While the sensor analysis seems to work better and the video appears more stable I noticed that the .......
New 1599 Again.jpg and New 1600 again.jpg are what my master BIAS frames look like when using these new drivers. Notice that the changes in Mean and Std. Dev. values are very small.

Peter

P.S. I also noticed that the whitebalance parameters are now 16.  My original drivers were setting them to 64 and the 64 value was the correct value.  Now I find that even if I change back to the original drivers the correct values for whitebalance are 16.  This is not a big problem for me but it needs to be documented and users should be made aware of this change.

Out of curiosity, which program did you use for the Histogram?

I also see RGB well aligned!

Just learning ... I am still re-reading this thread and see below other posts now that I found quietness in our house!!!

Regarding the drivers page etc. I mentioned earlier on this thread ... on this page:
https://www.qhyccd.com/index.php?m=content&c=index&a=show&catid=94&id=9&cut=2

I still see old driver.

I noticed today every time I reply in this forums, after posting it I get re-directed to a main page and not back to the same thread.

Just informing you

Maybe this page should be updated, so one can check there if there are any updates.

Another problem is: QHYCCD software asks you to supply your email when installing to get 6 months more warranty and it 'never' accepts it or at least it seems not to!

It would be nice to have that working and list all those that supplied an email within a database to send 'every' update QHYCCD does to all signed up customers and also would be nice to get an extended 6 months warranty as promised!

I finally managed nearly a week ago to do the Sensor Analysis after I updated driver [although I do not know why it still is the same June 2020 dated file] and got this:

Addition, Robin of SharpCap said it looks odd !

ADDED NEW SENSOR ANALYSIS after further update to latest  camera drivers 22 Dec 2020 ...

Second image below is today ... am I correct the e/ADU has improved at 1500 ? Not an expert ...

I believe I must keep this post on this area as it is all c0nnected in my view.

What I have done now.

I have latest .DLL set on Sharpcap.

Now getting darker - wasted all morning!

Camera onto SW 72ED with white diffuser or shirt - no difference!

Exp: 235
Histo: 32%
RGB: 16 [auto set]

set exp to 239 NO CHANGE !
set to 245 NO CHANGE !
set to 255 Histo goes to 40% and starts to flicker with a white fascia on top ~15% of screen  !
set to 265-275-285-295 - as above!
set to 325 flickers oscillating at 50-55% - no white fascia!


What the heck is going on?

In my view - more as an electronics technician, than a developer, there is a problem between driver and hardware and confirms what Robin of Sharpcap stated.

There seems to be a number of QHYCCD cameras of various model doing this: cannot keep steady at minimal Exposure changes - maybe all of them.

I am really tired of this, I have spent money I do not have and paying for it.

Just annoyed!

Can QHYCCD finally fix all these annoying continuous problems?

Maybe I should have real;ly spent more and get an ASI - just to hopefully avoid all this mess I do not really need in my life.

I am trying to set up things for retirement and I seem to only get grief!!

Then to make it worse, I need to pass 5-20 [yes 20] reCaptcha for each post!

TIRED !
