Re: Very low framerates with new Dell laptop

Yeah if you’ve tried all of that and are still have persisting issues seems like a Windows version/driver issue. Maybe try uninstalling and then reinstalling drivers and check for latest ones or even maybe use drivers that had worked in your former PC. Also any issues with other devices connected to...

Re: Very low framerates with new Dell laptop

Hi, I’m far from a power user of ZWO cameras but had used previous ZWO cams in the past. The one thing that always helped for me was in FireCapture under the Settings and General tab, increase the Heap size until it’s about half of your physical memory size and then click on use RAM Buffer (it says ...

Thanks Sam for your reply.
Done deal then, I will pick up the 290mm based on your feedback for this Mars apparition.

Cheers!

ASI 290mm or 120mms for planetary use with a C9.25?

Hi all I posted the same query in the imaging forum but got no response. Which monochrome cam is best suited for use with a Celestron C9.25? The ASI 290 mm or 120mms, or other camera? This will be for high res RGB planetary imaging and not for DSO’s. I read a review where it said the 290mm would be ...

Re: Best ZWO monochrome cam for a C9.25 (290mm or 120 mms)

Sam or anyone, any guidance you can provide here? The 120mms have gotten very affordable now but I don’t want to waste my money on it if another camer would be better.

Best ZWO monochrome cam for a C9.25 (290mm or 120 mms)

Hi all, As the thread title suggests I’m looking for the best optimized monochrome cam from ZWO to be used for high resolution planetary imaging especially Mars with a Celestron C9.25 (fl = 2350mm). I have read reviews where it said that the ASI 290 mm is better suited for larger aperture scopes and...
