    This post might be similar to another but I'll ask the question anyway. I am trying to use the Allsky 340 camera for detecting cloud cover during the day. As it is, any picture I take of the sky is too bright to detect any sort of cloud. I read in the manual about using the color sensor during the day as the monochrome sensor is too sensitive to take effective photos. How do I use the color sensor? Is it a setting I need to select or is it something to do with the camera lens itself? Can I buy a color lens or would I have to replace the current camera with one that supports color imaging?

    Thank you for your help.

    That requires a different sensor chip in the camera. It is major surgery to change it.

    Also the color version of the sensor has been discontinued by the manufacturer, so it is no longer available.

    Perhaps you could put some kind of neutral density filter on the lens.
