Somebody donated a Mallincam VSS+ to our club. I got it working, focused, and such. But I cannot see how to control the brightness. I am overexposing everything.
I use a framegrabber to connect to SharpCap. Sharpcap picks it right up. Get it going, can focus (kinda--as well as can be on the edge of the moon). But, all detail is blown out. I started to get a decent image of Saturn as it went behind some trees and was therefore substantially dimmed.
So, my questions----
Can I run it with Sharpcap. If so, how do I control the exposure. I tried the brightness, sharpness, contrast, etc. sliders, and poked around the "Video Amp" and other tabs. But I could not figure it out.
If I cannot run it with SharpCap, what software do I need to control the camera exposure?
I have not figured out what the controls on the camera itself do (except putting in the titles!).
