Which camera do you have? 

QHYCCD Standard Software Q&A / Re: Old QHY8 Camera and drivers
« Last post by Bianchina3 on April 20, 2018, 07:59:00 am »
Thanks for the quick response (as always).

Let me be more specific. 

I currently have a Windows 10 computer that is running camera on Nebulosity 4.  No problems.  I am setting up a new computer (Intel CompuStick (ICS) running Win10) to remotely image.  When I plug the camera into the ICS it will not recognize the camera as a camera but rather as an unknown device.  If I run the driver (any of the QHY8 drivers) from the web site it will recognize the camera as an astro imaging device.  When I go to Nebulosity and select any of the QHY8 (QHY8L, QHY8P or QHYPro) the programs says no camera found.  I have tried completely uninstalling the device and removing all of the drivers and repeating.

I know I have had this problem in the past since my current computer was also set up from scratch but I can't figure out/remember what I did to solve the issue.  When I look at the driver on the old computer the date is from 2010.  I am not in front of the old computer right now but I can get more info if needed.  Also my camera is technically the QHY453 but I don't think that makes a difference for you. 

Thanks for the help.

Did you try to connect camera to another computer?

Best Regards

    Do you mean your computer can't find your camera?You can't see your camera in device manager after you connect camera to computer,right?

I am setting up a new computer and am having all kinds of trouble installing the drivers for my old QHY8 (2008 version).  I cannot seem to get the correct drivers loaded.  All of the current drivers do not work.  I know I have solved this problem before but can't figure it out again.  I use Nebulaosity 4 and I also want to use ASCOM control as well.

Can anyone help?  I am desperate!

whether the surrounding is changed?
sorry, didnít get any notification of a response...no, no change in surroundings...BUT, I was using EZCAP for my messurements for the settings. It doesnít seem to work. I ended up using Nebulosity and iím Back to my original settings.
That is correct - when I select subframe at start it will show normal offset level. However if I deselect subframe then it goes again to level over 4000ADU and does not want to go back to low level :(
    I'm sorry for my late reply,here is a new library,you can download it and replace old library to check if it can solve your issue.
Best Regards,

Thank you Qin, works perfect!

Astronomical Photography / Rosette Nebula with QHY168C and Halpha filter
« Last post by Susaron on April 18, 2018, 04:55:25 am »
Dear all,

Last Easter I was able to get out a day with some low soaring clouds and full Moon. The idea was to test the behavior of the QHY168C in narrowband with an Optolong Halpha 12nm filter.

The frame is a stack of 20x120s unguided subs at Gain 5, Offset 60, Temp 2ļC ( I did not use the cooling only the moving fan), only 30 bias applied.

The post-processing was done with Pix, it is a little bit forces as I am still on the learning path.
In brief I am very satisfied with the sensitivity of the camera, though I appreciate some noise in the background may be due to the readout noise and the fact of shooting with low gain and short exposures.

Best Regards.

Which set up did you use Gain/Offset/Temp?
