With the new ASI071 I seem to encounter some ampglow problems, in combination with the Raspberry, via which I am managing my entire set up (indilib/KStars/Ekos).

Am I right that this might be due to the USB2 interface of the Raspberry? If yes, can that be fixed somehow, or is a solution already out there?

Many thanks,

Helge

you can try to turn up "USB bandwidth" to faster the transfer speed
too slow transfer may have amp-glow problem

Hi Sam,

...so I did, increasing in indi from initially 40 to 100 (=max) indeed has a positive effect, - still there is a fair bit of amp-glow remaining. Would be good to know if anything could be done for those users who cannot avoid using USB 2.0.

Many thanks for your kind support!

Helge

sorry, there is no way if you use USB2.0

we will add one DDR buffer to our camera to solve such problem in the future

Thanks - the DDR buffer, will this be introduced as a software update, so I could also benefit?

Best, Helge

Hi Sam,

Just wanted to catch up - do you already have any date in mind when the DDR buffer will come? Would be fantastic to have!

Thanks once again for addressing,

Helge
