Got this camera months back and don't really know what to make of it,my intention was to mount on my new orion mini guider scope while I took DSLR images,weather was really bad and astronomy depression kicked in,set kit back up yesterday and tried again,with the telescope tube attachment you get with the why it was near hanging out finder scope,fitted the parafocal ring anrun it through sharpcap,,image wise in my opinion is its crap,sharpcap was the best to use compared to boxed software with the camera,need to test on ed80 but I have seen better webcam results, anyone else using this,I know there are many variants of this camera,is it a rip off of a guide camera
Bit of black magic with the nodded scb2000 (40mm internal 40mm fan blowing hot air from chip,40mm fan on top sucking hot air out and 1mm fans on sides)all fans are high cfm rated and dropped zero frames when cooling active in sharpcap
This is my thinking,a step on from multi camera array,tracking multi camera array,yes I'm nuts,camera on ed80,camera on finder and with this another camera fitting. Ebay 322010551193. Double finder bracket..three camera set up
Guiding..we dont do guiding lol...this is all camera magic..ed80 and canon 600d on video or a/p..orion guide finder and qhy as a widefield video cam was idea ,now im looking at a y finder bracket that will allow two orion finder guider,,if the qhy is truly pants during the day its not going to be good at night.if this is the case its sammy on one and pd1 on the other.two laptops,,,shame on you rick,bottom of class and your on naughty step for a week for no reading all the gaffers posts... Analogue cameras can be fed to a cctv dvr four feeds can be seen on screen at one time and record all channels at once to internal dvr 1.5tv hard drive.. now even better take a tap off dvr to monitor feed and put this to a usb grabber and you know can also use this to broadcast..lovely.. old tech now for me done it a year ago lol
Well its not all plain sailing in the house of shirva tonight...this qhy5lii is doing my nut it,its a pain in the backside to me being honest..I have it rigged up to the orion mini guide scope to use as a widefield video cam while my ed80 with focal reducer has a canon 600d taking astrophotos..im using latest version of sharpcap 2.8 can I get an image not a dickie bird... gotta be easier than this ...aaargh.
Dave, Do you have both the 600d and the qhy on the same PC? Even if going to two diff ports I have had my old pc spitting the dummy and only accepting one or the other for video due to them mucking abart with the internal Operating System thingamujigs. Howie
