I installed a nuc pc for my setup in order to replace my intel-stick mini pc. I installed the latest version of SGP and went out for some tests and setting up the new pc. I use an Atik 383l+ and when downloading i notice that the images are darker than when i used my intel-stick. Furthermore it is impossible to use the autofocus procedure as the software at the nuc does not locate any stars no matter how long the exposure is despite the fact that i use the same settings for the atofocus. Does anybody have any idea what might be the cause of this, i tried using other usb ports but i had no success. I include two photos of the Pleiades, a 5sec bin 2x2 image, the image from the nuc has less noise but has no detail whereas the image from the intel-stick is noiser but you can make out some nebulosity.
Also a question that i though of now, when setting up my equipment at sgp (on the nuc) i did not enter a value for the readout noise, i don’t remember i have done the same thing at the intel-stick, does this affect the images?
