Hi, I’m using an ASI CMOS camera with SGP in an ascom setup and am wondering about the gain settings and which ones are valid and which ones are not.
There seem to be many different places to set gain, and it’s a bit unclear to me which ones actually work and which ones do not.
The ZWO camera settings dialog can set gain and offset. But setting things here does not allow them to show up in the file naming dialog. It seems that neither gain or offset parameters doesn’t pass from ASCOM to the SGP software. I am thinking that this is the place I should be setting gain and offset. I either use the little wrench on the sequence page next to the camera, or on the control panel page. The same dialog comes up for me.
But then there are other places in SGP to set gain, such as the event settings dialog or control panel dialog for the camera, under the gain/binning settings. I can set gain but not offset in these other places. These settings seem to be SGP parameters as they do pass to the file naming, but wondering whether they actually change the camera settings or not, or are they just parameters in SGP not being passed anywhere?
Finally, in the FITs headers. What sets these parameters? Do they represent camera settings or just parameter settings which may or may not be what the camera is set to?
