Re: TSX Memory Errors when using ASI6200MC-Pro and EFW

By the way, the fact that memory errors begin to occur at just above 2GB of RAM allocated to TSX suggest some sort of problem with the X2 driver. 32-bit apps like TSX should be able to access up to 4GB without any problem.

Re: TSX Memory Errors when using ASI6200MC-Pro and EFW

It appears the problem is a memory allocation error related to the limitations of 32-bit TSX Pro as it tries to allocate memory above about 2GB. TSX is very memory hungry - on my Windows 10 machine, it requires approximately 1.8-1.9GB to run while imaging. When used with automation software (CCD Aut...

Re: TSX Memory Errors when using ASI6200MC-Pro and EFW

Hi, I used ASCOM drivers for just the filter wheel and my automated CCDAP run crashed due to a memory error on the 27th image. So, this morning after the session terminated, I tried the other combinations of ASCOM and X2 drivers (ASCOM camera - ASCOM EFW; ASCOM camera - X2 EFW) and all of them produ...

Re: TSX Memory Errors when using ASI6200MC-Pro and EFW

Hi, Thanks for your reply. The camera works fine in ASIStudio. I use TheSkyX (TSX) because I prefer native X2 plugins over ASCOM. I also use CCD Autopilot (CCDAP) for automation which integrates well with TSX (TSX controls everything) and does not require ASCOM. Bottom line is that I would prefer no...

TSX Memory Errors when using ASI6200MC-Pro and EFW

Hi, I am trying to use your new ASI6200MC-Pro Camera and 5-position 2" ASI filter wheel (EFW) with TheSkyX Pro build 12503 (latest). I have installed the latest X2 plugins for both camera (2.0.2.9) and EFW (1.0.0.3). I use a filter wheel with this camera because I often use a Baader Neodymium filter...

ASI1071-MC Cool gain & offset settings

Hello, Does anyone have any experience and/or suggestions on recommended gain/offset settings for the new ASI1071 one-shot color camera on 3 - 5 minute exposures? I have been experimenting with bias and dark frames and the noise levels seem to be higher than I would expect; so I am hoping someone ha...
