Color is wrong for ASICap

Post by localhost » Mon Dec 17, 2018 5:28 am

Not sure what went wrong but ASICap for PC is showing the wrong colors attached a picture of what the color was showing Orion looking...

Not sure how that ended up with that red color but Orion was red...

A lot of hot pixels as well.

This is for a ZWO ASI 120MC-S

Hi, thanks for your feedback.
You could try to adjust the white balance, which may help to get the desired color. In addition, hot noise can be reduced by appropriately reducing the gain.

Yes, Thank you! I came across that area on the ASICap while waiting on a reply, as for the hot pixels I find that out to by lowering the Gain.
Hot pixels can be removed anyways using dark frames.

Thanks, for the reply would've been good to know had I not came across that color option in the ASI Cap software, problem was trying to find that area.

Yes, it's a little hard to find. We will optimize the settings to make them easier to find.
Happy New Year!
