Confusion Over ASICamera Setup Camera Gain Settings and ASI2600MC Pro Gain Plots

Post by jwaters125 » Fri Mar 27, 2020 5:04 am

I have an ASI2600MC Pro. The Read Noise / Dynamic Range vs. Gain Plots at the ZWO link below range from 0 to 450. I want to set the 2600 to a Gain of 100 per the ZWO plots so I get the best Read Noise and Dynamic Range from the camera. The camera Gain settings in "ASICamera Setup" are 0 to 100. It looks like an absolute scale. The "ASICamera Setup" Preset Drop Downs are…

- Highest Dynamic Range
- Unity Gain
- Lowest Read Noise
- Manual

How can I set the camera to the Gain of 100 per the ZWO documentation at the link below?

I am using ASICamera Setup V 6.0.3.28.
