Hi Luca and Marcus,
So I have managed to get two clear nights for observing, on the trot. Almost unheard of in the UK!

So when I select the Unity Gain in the drop down list in the ASCOM setup dialog it appears to set the following:
Gain = 120, Offset =30 and USB Limit = 80

Question - how does a gain of 120, equate to unity gain?


Gain 120 is unity gain (1 e/ADU) for this camera.

I always use 2x2 binning when imaging. I use my Nexstar C8 at native F/10 and F/6.3. Always with 2x2 bin. Never have any problems.
