I received my new camera and got it all apparently working in APT.

I'm having trouble with some settings though. From inside APT, I click on the camera settings button and the only thing I can change is the gain. I realise the Offset is now permanently set to 50 but where can I change other settings such as 16 bit, 12bit 10bit, chooses between hardware/software binning?

As you’re using APT, I’ll assuming you’re doing DSO imaging, in which case you only want it on 16-bit output.

Binning is in a drop down menu at the bottom of the Camera tab. But this is a CMOS camera, there is no advantage to using any Bin mode as it is just software resampling.

Yes, we set a static vaule for offset, it's doesn't need to adjust manually anymore.

Thanks! I think that's me sorted -. The answer seems to be "In APT, you can only change the gain or software binning settings"

Also, "There is no hardware binning" (as I suspected!)

Yep, I'm doing DSO imaging, so I think I'm all OK now. Thanks again
