Hi, Sorry if i have got this posted in the wrong section, I tend to always get this wrong.
I have also posted this on the APT forum trying to get some advise also,
So i am just moving over to a ZWO asi 2600mc camera, I have previously been using a Canon EOS 600D, so it is a bit of a steep learning curve to get the basic understood, at least it is for me.
So i am trying to set up this asi2600mc in APT ( astro photography tool ), so far everything is completely different from the Conon 600D, been doing a bit of a search around but the only information i ca really find is when things are already up and running.
So i am looking for some help right at the beginning please.
So i have to options to connect the camera with when using the shift + connect on the camera tab:
1. Ascom camera
2. ZWO camera.
Not sure which one i am suppose to go with here?
In option 1. Ascom, i have some more options to confuse me further:
Under preset, i have 3 options:
1, Manual, 2. Highest Dynamic Range, 3. Lowest Read Noise.
Again, i am not sure what i should be going with, but Lowest read noise seams to be an obvious choice?
Then i have a sliding option for Gain, 0 - 100, not sure about this also.
If i go right back to the beginning and select option 2. ZWO camera i have again more options.
Black level/offset, not sure what this is or what i am suppose to put here.
USB speed % wouldn't i just select 100% for this?
Enable Dew heater? ( i run the Pegasus pocket power box so i assume i leave this unchecked as i am driving it through the Pegasus own software )
WB_R default is 50, but again not sure on this
WB_B is also default at 50, not sure on this also
Hardware Binning, i would assume just leave this at 1x1
As you can see, i am in a bit of a confused muddle here at the moment, if anyone can please help be de muddle this a tad for me it would be greatly appreciated.
I have a few questions in regards to the imaging plan also, but prefer to get this bit sorted and understood first.
Thanks in advance.
