Hello all
Just got the ZWO 1600 cool colour camera.
I cant seem to change the high dynamic range. When I do it always defaults back to HDR.
What am I doing wrong.
Any suggestions

Jim

I'm using Maxim dl.
So it's the ascom window that seems to default

Maybe I should explain a little more.
In the ascom settings window I can change gain and offset but when I choose lowest read noise, hit "set" then "ok" but when I re-open the settings window it shows Highest Dynamic Range again.
So my question is : has it changed that setting?

this is because the setting only take effect after you click the set button
these control values will reflect the value you set
and you can change these value by hand
predefined settings cannot reflect these changes
so it always show the default setting

The pre-defined setting is only used to provide some value, and your choise can't be remembered and shown. Consider this condition, if you set as "High dynamic range" and then adjust the gain manually, so the value isn't one of provided pre-defined settings.

Ok That makes sense. Thank you for your reply.

By the way this camera is great. I took 30 60 sec. lights of M 31 last night. Best photo I have achieved so far. (HD 11 with Hyperstar)
I have been using the Atik 428. Not sure if I want to keep it now.

Thanks again

Jim

ASI1600 is a giant step from CCD to CMOS, all other manufacture will follow
