Re: ASI 1600MM-c AMP GLOW PROBLEM SOLVED

I'll outline how this all played out over 6+months of exchanges with Sean and Sam. The Amp Glow I was seeing would not process out . I am not shooting bright objects but going for objects that required dozens of hours of exposures. In order to use my images I had to toss about 20% of the frame due t...

Re: Internal Memory Buffer

I am having a really hard time calibrating it out..... using darks taken at identical settings.... when shooting really faint objects I nearly always find some residual noise from the Amp Glow.... to me that says there must be some variability in the Amp Glow..... if it was not varying by some small...

Re: Internal Memory Buffer

So... I found some information that says the internal memory for super fast downloads may well NOT cure the Amp Glow issue..... I thought the Amp Glow occurred during download of the date from the chip.... so I thought the super fast image transfer would cure the problem.... If that is not the case ...

Re: Internal Memory Buffer

I will tell you that even with the USB 3.0 system I still see the Amp Glow.... I'm not shooting the bright objects.... I'm working super faint stuff and Narrow Band imaging..... The Amp Glow still shows up after applying Darks.... it is just not as painfully obvious..... so... doing an instantaneous...

Re: Internal Memory Buffer

EFW 8 will not calibrate

When I connect the camera (1600 MMC) + filter wheel and go to "connect" the filter wheel it says "fail to calibrate" .... watching it work as it attempts to calibrate it never ends up in the same filter position when I attempt to do additional calibration runs..... It used to work fine before I went...
