ASI6200 binning

Post by RoySalisbury » Fri Jan 10, 2020 10:53 pm

I'm wondering about the binning capabilities of the ASI 6200 (mono). Will this be on camera binning using a 16 bit ADC, 12 bit ADC, or software binning in the driver?

Also, how does the binning compare with read noise and full well stats? I'm hoping to get just as good of binning that I do with my CCD cameras.

Also, what modes are supported? 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, etc?

It use 16bit ADC, It can do harware bin1,2,3, there are some difficulties to get hardware bin 4 , so when you choose hardware bin4 in ASICAP, it uses hardware bin2+ softwre bin 2.
For DSO imaging with ASCOM, you are using software bin.

Pleaes refer to the detail page of ASI6200. especially the graph, it can answer your question.
