Hi everyone, my second question for the day....  and thanks to the community for such great response to my first question. This hobby is daunting - but how great that everyone is so helpful.

 

I've attached an example of a sub from my QHY 10 camera. You'll see it has a pink bar down the one side and other bars down the other. I'm trying to nut out what they are. Has anyone seen anything like it before please?

 

Many thanks

There is a checkbox in the ASCOM or driver settings called something like overscan- it is used for more accurate calibration. Make sure it is unchecked then retry.

Thank you very much for that .... I'll try it as soon as I get home. That's something that I would not have thought of. Much obliged. :-)
