Kevin_A I also tried to add extra ZWO O-rings ( bought another fan from them that came with 4 extra ) as you suggest but I didn't find any real improvement. So I am lucky being able to reduce the vibration just with the Noctua anti-vibration mounts. The fan is suspended in the middle of the case and doesn't touch any other surface of the camera, may be that's the reason. I can reach -23º C during winter with that configuration ( where I live, winter is mild ). And my stars are round, something I haven't had before. As I said, lucky me ;-)
minimoto71 i tried a lot of configurations and so did a lot of others. So much variance of results. I still have many posts and many fans left over. From my testing. There was a lot of vibration variances in the Sunon fans. I have also read so many peoples experiences that were all over the place, some successful with posts and others not at all that I also believe that some of the vibrations on some cameras are created by high cfm vibrating the heat sink fins as well. I wish i had more time and extra cameras to test an even better solution as some had great sucess from weights and some other manufacturers use isolation springs with great results. If zwo would send me a few cameras to test I would gladly design a better method as thats what I used to do before I retired… design better solutions to mechanical designs.
minimoto71 on a bad fan that soft suspension actually creates a longer frequency vibration but not as rapid so it just changes the frequency. It still transfers into the case but you feel it differently… the best suspension is on very thin hair wire springs. If you send a vibration through a heavy mass it gets absorbed, thru a thin wire it dissipates it and thru a medium size soft solid it does neither much other than slightly reduce absorbsion thru it. Some other cameras out there use heavy housings and some extra thin wire springs too.
getsaf About PA: Could you please submit the log after this problem occurs? Thanks in advance
About Sky Atlas: Your question has been received and we will optimize it in the future.
PMTeam@ZWO could you please verify that you reverted the Minmo back to 0.1 from 0.2 in this release, as the increase to 0.2 was in the previous beta test and was not advantageous for SWG (harmonic drive) mounts. Thanks.
Yup, did that already. I still would like to be able to lower the fan speed as well. There is a thread over on CN about adding a small dab of glue to one or more blades to better balance it.
This update is definitely going in the right direction for AM5 users and 2600 users.
@PMTeam@ZWO i did notice that after I set my asi2600mc pro gain to -25 in the camera tab page it swithes from Gain -25 to Gain 0 in the main asiair page (beside image resolution) as soon as I start imaging in preview mode and it also switches to Gain 0 when it starts imaging in autorun. Files are saved with detail info that says gain -25. When i go back to the main camera tab page to check, it changes back to -25 on the main page and it is at gain 0 on the camera tab page then slides to -25 immediately on the gain slider bar. I did send a bug report but not sure it will show up.
w7ay From my testing of 2.1.2,/ 10.92, I think MinMo of 0.2 is still in the software. My guiding was bad under this version with corrections only made in large increments when the guiding was past 1.2 on the guiding graph. I reverted back to the stable release and guiding improved and the frequency is more often and the size of the correction is more varied.
charding i still think @PMTeam@ZWO needs to address this! Or at least make it an advanced fearure for all SWG mounts. That was my experience with the last beta test.
ZWO can you please address this too high a Minmo of 0.2 for the SWG mounts.
Just to confirm - is the ASIAIR still using JNOW for its coordinate system with the latest Public Beta?
Or is it now using J2000?
Corsair it is using JNow. But import (in plan mode)with J2000.
PMTeam@ZWO thank you for fixing the bug related to the incorrect display of -25 gain on the main page of Asiair for the asi2600mc pro cameras extended gain setting. That was super fast and it is confirmed fixed in the latest testflight of Asiair that I just ran.
What benefits would lowering the gain to -25 have?
ppurbano first of all it puts the camera at unity gain but that has less meaning these days. The biggest gain is the extended full well capacity. It can be useful for very fast scopes in the range of f2 to f3.2 so the pixels do not get oversaturated. Therefore it it is possible to do less longer exposures instead of more shorter ones. Truthfully the tiny bit of dynamic range increase also may not outweigh the very rapid increase of read noise at gain -25 compared to gain 0. It is nice to have options, whether it is useful for most… probably not and gain 0 for broadband and gain 100 for broadband and narrowband will still be the most used gain settings.
It could be very useful to be able to do ROI on the 2600. We have been asking for it for a long time. Thank you
oK, perfect. Thanks
2.12 does not work with iOS 17.2, it loads and gets to the firmware update screen but the green update button is unclickable and you are stuck there. tried on two devices (iPad Pro & iPhone 15) and both fail to update or get past the screen.
I reverted off beta to the current live version in App store and the firmware update worked fine from 10.71 to 10.74. so something is wrong with the beta's update screen/button/process.
if you could please please address the silly start in landscape, switch to portrait, back to landscape modes.
please pick one or allow both, but don't force people to switch back and forth and have to fumble with their device that's in a stand or on a table.
Kring Completely agree!!
Kring my iPad starts in portrait for the splash screen and then switches to landscape once enter is pressed. I don’t see the problem.
