    But when I tested it,it can work well with x64 version NINA,I installed 3in1 ASCOM driver 0.1.51.25 and put the x64 version SDK to C:\Program File\NINA...\Externsl\x64\QHYCCD folder.

Hi,

I tried your provided links and they did work with 64-bit NINA v 1.9R004.
They do not work with the newer versions above like the Nightly versions 1.10-004 and above.
So I guess there is something in the newer versions of NINA that is messing up the QHY driver.
Maybe sometime if you have a chance you could test against this version:

https://nighttime-imaging.eu/downloads/Setup/Nightlies/1.10.0.1006/NINASetupBundle_1.10.0.1006.zip

Somehow the SDK is getting broken in newer version when I put it in the \External\QHYCCD folder. And then the cooling problem starts again.

Thanks for this latest recommendation which did help.

I also just installed NINA 32-bit 1.10-006 and the 16200A cooling works fine in that version but not in the 64-bit version.

Hi,

Thanks for testing that newer version.

I notice in the top left of your screen save that the "cooler power" is 100% and it is with .5 degrees of setpoint, indicates to me that it spiked during image acquisition and download.  I usually watch the behavior with a longer exposure in the Equipment\Camera tab where you can see both the temperature and power graphs.  When taking the exposure and downloading those graphs show power spike until the download is complete.  When you have time try 30s or 1min exposure and see if the same occurs in this version.

Appreciate seeing this from your end.

Hi,
    Well,in fact,this image is captured when camera cooler,the temperature and PWM has not be stable,when it be stable,the PWM become about 70%.And I will try 30s and 1min exposure.

Ahh...OK probably fine then.

Worked with Dale G some yesterday and we used the qhyccd.dll you linked and had good results with temperature control.  Only problem that he is trying to figure out is an Overscan issue.  With Overscan On after a couple frames there is a lockup in the middle of the third frame.  We were running NINA 1.10-008.  Think he will probably let you know what he is finding.
