Dear CNers :-)
as some of you know, I am one of these beta 163m owners and, as typically, I face issues nobody else has (or see)... due to my silly questions and observations, QHY recently did a lot of driver updates, but I am still not 100% satisfied with the results and thinking that my camera has somehow more noise than the others have (just as seen in simple StdDev of a raw biases and darks as I have not yet moved from this base simple phase into real noise calculations like e.g. readout noise etc.).
Therefore, I have 2 questions on other QHY163M beta testers
#1 - first about filter wheel (I have the 7pos 36mm - the middle size - UltraSlim version):
is THIS NORMAL???
even when powered up the disk can be easily moved by finger...
also, strange is that the wheel rotates always only in 1 direction which is quite silly... not speaking about the colorful blinking leds and issue in ascom driver when I can make it think to be on other position then it actually is... but let's start from beginning...
#2 - second, could you, please, share with me some of following information:
StdDev (in MaxIm DL CTRL+I switch Mode to Area and read StdDev number)
I would like you to be updated to the latest driver:
system driver 16-11-18
ASCOM capture driver 1.46
as these are latest of today.
a BIG THANK you to all...
BTW my StdDev readings are
bias at ambient - 35 ADU
bias at minus 15deg Celsius - 33 ADU
dark 30sec at ambient - 582 ADU
dark 30sec at minus 15deg Celsius - 169 ADU
dark 300sec at minus 15deg Celsius - 1527 ADU
