Where can I get Drivers for new planetary camera this year?
I received new ASI678mc yesterday, Installed recent drivers. But It doesn’t appear at Sharp cap , Firecapture…
Only can control at ASI STUDIO
sara.liu – :
Please update the SDK.
Olivier Batteux – :
Regarding noise and capacity, what will be the best camera for planetary imaging between 678MC and 662MC ? Will they be better than the 224 MC ?
I already have a 224 MC but I use it as autoguider for deep sky, and it would be better not to have to dismount it for planetary imaging.
I would like to buy another camera for planetary imaging, but when one will be better than the 224 MC.
sara.liu – :
The QE of 662 is higher than 678, and it also has a bigger full well and a lower price.
If you want a camera with big format and high resolution, I recommend you 585MC.
chaudier – :
Quelle est la fréquence d’images maximale de cette caméra à 1920 x 1080 ?
sara.liu – :
It’s 102fps in the high speed mode;)
