ZWO ASI294 Pro Colour CMOS Camera
« on: Jan 31, 2018, 17:07:12 »
Hi Everyone,

Finally got some subs with my new camera, but only 50 minutes worth. Now I am learning to process FITS files in Pixinsight. Shouldn't be any different to a DSLR should it. After all it's a one shot colour (OSC) camera with a bayered SONY sensor... In the meantime I ran the Pixinsight Basic CCD Parameters Script with some calibration files - Darks taken at -15C, Bias at -12C, Flats at 0C as the camera warmed up, all Unity Gain [120]). Probably should all be at the same temperature.

Here is the result. Not such a pretty picture but some really interesting numbers ;)

Have fun with the new camera Duncan, you'll find cooling will make a difference as you can do longer exposures.

First image... The moon I posted was with this camera and I have 250x30s of the Flame and Horse head to process. Maybe I should do some pictures of clouds! It does short enough exposures:)
