Quote:Damn it, you must be right again!
Your technical explanation seems logical.
I thought I was right because in the tabel from here http://www.aliexpress.com/item/BAVONO-CCTV-700TVL-OSD-Menu-Ultra-WDR-Gun-Box-... says AGC = Level Setting.
Than I saw on Bavono's website that AGC is adjustable 3dB steps and I concluded that you set it manually with a fixed value.
I haven't thought that by level setting you establish only the upper limit and the AGC fluctuates as it wants between odB and user's fixed upper limit.

Quote:I have read on forums that Dahua makes better quality products, as are in general Korean products than Chinese ones (at least that's my impression). OK, than what about this one http://www.d-max.co.kr/product/manual/dcc-600f.pdf ?D-MAX camera's AGC seems to be manual so maybe the cctv could be more useful at 512x with AGC On than Lntech at 1024x with AGC Off.
Quote:Please help me understand. Look at page no. 13 in D-Max manual. Since you can set AGC at 0-255 that means AGC is still not manual?
Quote:Does any Android application exist which allows the user to transform his Android device in a portable LiveView DVR for his CCTV/ analog astro camera by means of a USB cable connection?
Quote:Yes, I know there are other devices. I have found a mini DVR with a 3.5" LCD an AV IN.But it would be wonderful and cost effective to be able to connect everything in astronomy to your phone (Android or iPhone) and not to be forced to buy new devices for different applications in astronomy.In other words I'm looking for a laptop substitute in my Android phone considering it has GPS,etc.Just imagine a Lntech300 camera connected to your phone through a cable which replaces a TV and a separate recorder or a laptop or even become an autoguider. You have the phone all the time with you in your pocket.Can CCTVs be used for autoguiding? Is any software available for this?
