Filter wheel number

Would it be possible to include the filter wheel slot number in the text file with the camera settings that's created at the end of each recording?

ASICAP keeps crashing

I had to uninstall ASICAP from my Google Pixel XL because it kept crashing. It actually has gotten worse. Before ASICAP would work at least long enough for a few minutes for videocapturing Jupiter but now it won't run for more than a minute before crashing. I even tried slowing down the frame rate t...

Re: Set for 1280x960. Get 640x480 instead

I figured out what was wrong: Bin2 seems to default to 640x480. When I switched to Bin1, I was back to 1280x960.

Set for 1280x960. Get 640x480 instead

I set my ASI120MC-S to tape in 1280x960 but the video always comes out at 640x480. And it's not like half of the pixels are off. Rather, it seems to compress the video and I wind up with 1/2 the resolution. Do you know how I set the camera to record in the proper resolution?

Re: Frames per second: RAM or processor speed

I tested a different USB port and it did speed up and run at over 40 fps and capturing around 35-37 fps while dropping some. My Acer Aspire E15 has two 2.0 USB ports and a single 3.0 USB port. The faster speeds are probably from plugging it into the 3.0 USB port.

Frames per second: RAM or processor speed

I just got the ASI120MC-S and have been taking it out on the field and running on my laptop but it's been running slow. However, when I ran it on my desktop, it was running the full 60 fps at 1280x960 as opposed to my laptop that gets only 30 fps at 1280x960. My question is does the disparity in fps...
