ASI1600 Gain Units?

Post by jimv » Tue May 05, 2020 1:34 am

Hello.

I have two ZWO cameras: ASI1600MC-COOL and ASI1600MM Pro.

Gain settings for these cameras is adjustable from 0-600. What are the units of measure for this range?

I would like gain values in photo-electrons / ADU.

Thanks,
/jim

The unit of gain is dB, and the gain value corresponds to the conversion coefficient of different e / ADU.
You could see the chart in the attachment to help you understand the gain values.
