Thanks for the ASCOM Driver. I am using it with Nebulosity 3 and PVCam. I can specify the temp set point, binning, as well as exposures etc. Nebulosity functions behave normally so far. I have not been able to set the Quantix Gain within Nebulosity though, which is a rather important setting. Any chance of getting this feature?

Glad to hear that it worked for you. I'm guessing that Nebulosity doesn't support the ASCOM gain feature? I can add gain selection to the Setup dialog so you can go in and change it from there. Give me a couple of weeks, my camera is at my observatory across the state.

EDIT: I just got done adding gain support in the setup dialog for my ASCOM Lumenera camera driver, which actually queries the camera driver for the gain range. This should be even easier.

Also... I'm finally getting to the point where I can really image. I still need to work on my collimation, but I have the camera attached and the MPCC coma corrector in the imaging train of my 10" F4 Newtonian. This image is composed four 45 second frames. Clouds were rolling in and the other 6 of the 10 images I took were totally washed out. Just scratching the surface of what the camera can do:
