    Hi,

    I know nothing about VBscript or programming. So, I wondering is there any scripts that can set gain and offset for LRGB and Narrowband filters in creating sequence? This is because under CMOS camera nowadays we do practice low gain for LRGB and high gain for SHO filters. Instead of going into ASCOM to set gain and offset, maybe we can use scripts to automate them up?

    BTW, I am using QHY168C.

    Hope someone can help.

    Regards,
    Tom

    We can't directly control internal camera parameters like that. However, if the manufacture were to add this function to the ASCOM driver's ReadoutModes function, then it would be available.

    Also, please register for software support. You need to do the second step - see http://forum.diffractionlimited.com/pages/TechSupportHowTo/
