Hi guys, thank you very much for your quick replies.
@joelshort - It is indeed warmer in my home than in the field, but I thought with setpoint cooling, ambient temperature didn’t matter (at least to a certain extent). It’s about 74 F in my home. This same temperature would not be uncommon in the field during the summer months. I suppose I need to curb my expectations what the camera’s cooler is capable of.
Would you know if there’s much difference between -5C and -10C with respect to noise? If not, perhaps I’ll just shoot at -5C.
@jmtanous - The driver shows the power percentage at 100% and it does not get above -7C in my home. Also, I was wrong about Artemis being able to set the temp to -10C. The setting was actually 10C. I set it to -10C and it’s only able to achieve the same as what SGPro reports.
I checked the logs and they’re a bit misleading. They report:
[4/18/2015 1:12:40 PM] [DEBUG] [TEC Thread] TEC Change: Changing temp from 20.00 to -10.00 in 300 seconds…
[4/18/2015 1:17:40 PM] [DEBUG] [TEC Thread] TEC Change: Complete…
As an aside, I get this weird pop-up window when I use either SGPro or Artemis: “Atik Driver Server - This is an ASCOM driver, not a program for you to use.” Any idea what causes this pop-up? SGPro seems to lock up when I get this pop-up. I’m using the latest Atik drivers, dated January, 2015.
