ASI2600MC Pro Manufacturing Issues

I have had my ASI2600MC Pro for about a month and started having problems. The 3 USB connectors have started to wiggle side-to-side and push in a little. At first is wasn't much but the USB and power connectors are moving more. I purchased it from Woodland Hills Camera & Telescopes March 23, 2020. I...

Re: ASI2600 ASCOM Gain scale

I ran Nebulosity 4.4.1. I connected to my 2600 and played around with the Gain settings. Nebulosity Gain scale goes from 0 to 450. I set the Gain to 450 and the Nebulosity % indicator indicated 100%. I then set the Gain to 100 and the % indicator indicated about 21 / 22%. I may use 23% just to make ...

Re: ASI2600 ASCOM Gain scale

FYI - An email exchange I got from somebody. It looks like a gain of 22 using the ZWO ASI Driver equals 100 on the ZWO Dynamic Range, Full Well, Read Noise vs. Gain Plots. I am setting my gain to 22. Now I only need the clouds to go away. ------------------------ Thanks for the fast reply. I want to...

Modify / Fix the ASCOM ASICamera Setup Driver

The existing ASCOM ASICamera Setup Driver Gain scale goes from 0 to 100. All cooled ASI camera graphs on the ZWO website have a Gain scale from 0 TO 450. This is causing significant confusion...

Please modify / fix the ASICamera Setup Driver V 6.0.x Gain scale to match the published ZWO graphs.

Re: ASI2600 ASCOM Gain scale

Very good question buckeyestargazer. I have the same issue / question. IMHO the ASCOM device driver needs to upgraded so the Gain scale (0-100) maps to the Read Noise, Dynamic Range, Full Well ...etc vs. Gain plots (0-450) on the ZWO website. I posted a question about this and ZWO has not replied....

TEC Cool Down and Warm Up Time Question

I have an ASI2600MC Pro. Is it necessary to have a cool-down and warm-up time for this camera? Example - Cool the camera to -10C over a 5 minute period and warm up the camera over a 5 minute period.

Is this cool down and warm up time recommended?

Confusion Over ASICamera Setup Camera Gain Settings and ASI2600MC Pro Gain Plots

I have an ASI2600MC Pro. The Read Noise / Dynamic Range vs. Gain Plots at the ZWO link below range from 0 to 450. I want to set the 2600 to a Gain of 100 per the ZWO plots so I get the best Read Noise and Dynamic Range from the camera. The camera Gain settings in "ASICamera Setup" are 0 to 100. It l...

Are ASI2600MC Pro Shipping?

I saw a post on CN that there is a production hold on the ASI2600MC Pro. Are these camera's shipping? If not when do you expect shipment?

Connecting ASI2600 MC Pro to Large Format FR/FF

My ASI2600MC Pro is still on back-order. The ZWO website says the opening of the ASI2600 is 42mm. I just measured the thread on my FR/FF and its 48mm Male. How can I connect the ASI2600MC Pro to the FR/FF and maintain the correct back-focus?

ASI2600MC Pro - IR Cut Filter?

Is an IR Cut Filter required for the ASI2600?

The manual states in text that it has an IR Cut Filter but the graph says otherwise. Did ZWO post the wrong graph in the manual? Does the ASI2600 require an IR Cut Filter?
