Waiting for cooled camera to cool


#1

Hopefully, I put this in the right place.

I’m using an ASI1600MM-C camera with SGP and that combination works fine just about all the time. On occasion, however, SGP will state “waiting on camera temperature to start sequence (cooling to -5C)” when the camera may actually be already well below that temperature.

Does SGP need to actually see a DECREASE in temperature to the set point? Or is it expecting the camera to warm up to get to that set point? It doesn’t seem to notice that the actual camera temp is already below that.

The camera needs to be within 3 degrees of the set point for SGP to start. Dramatically different temperatures can cause issues with calibration frames on either side of the set point.

Thanks,
Jared

Ah. Got it. Thanks.
