I have a QSI 683 that I yesterday I upgraded it from a WS-5 to a WS-8 (basically installing a new filter wheel and back). That went without a hitch. The camera connects with SGP no problem, and the filter wheel twirls to whatever filter I ask it to. No problem.
Today I did some test images on my kitchen table, just to confirm that the filter wheel was moving correctly. I found that my download times have gone up significantly–from just a few seconds to almost a minute. I’d take a 1 second image, and it takes about 60 seconds to download. I get the Windows wheel while it waits. The bias and darks download quicker (about 20 seconds) but it’s still markedly prolonged.
I tried downloading an image with Nebulosity, and the light downloaded in about 15 seconds, which is more or less normal, as I remember, which makes me think it may be something with SGP or how my computer is talking to it. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it, and restarting the camera.
This is a new computer, Windows 7 64 bit 8 gigs.
Running SGP 220.127.116.1168 I haven’t yet downloaded the beta.
Below is a link to a folder with the various log files of my attempts today. (no need to look at all of them, I just put this in to show the repetition of the problem.
