It seems that the ASCOM driver for the QHY10 is very old.  It does not implement Version 2 of the ASCOM specification which has been
around for many years.

This means that gain and readout mode cannot be changed by the client application once the camera is connected. Using the FastSetting
window is clumsy and error prone. It also seems that the driver should support returning of minimum and maximum exposure times to the
client, as well as the other V2 interface properties!

This is very disappointing and seems to show a lack of commitment to the product! New cameras are being released by other manufacturers that are
much less expensive, with better capabiities and software. If you do not improve support, you will be left behind!

Very valid point.
