Hello all, I am having a real panic here with cooling my QHY8L with SG.
I have the ASCOM driver installed which reads as follows in my Win 7 64 control panel:
“QHYCCD QHY8L ASCOM Camera Driver 3.3.0”
I have used with the Auto control cooling system in EZCap and all seems to work fine
In SG Pro though, I connect to the camera, plug in the power supply to the 8L’s power
supply box as that is the correct procedure.
I have SG set to not turn on cooling on connection as I prefer to control that directly myself
at this point as i’m very new to SG. With the 8L displaying a temp of 21.4c I do the following:
Set the ‘Set Temperature To’ box to 21c
Set ‘Change Over’ to 5m
Turn Cooler to ON
Hit the ‘SET’ button
Power shoots straight up to 30% bringing my +21c temp aggressively fast down to
8.5c while the power slowly drops to 1% over about 1 min or so and stays at 1%
So my question is, as I set the ‘Set Temp To’ box actually slightly lower than the
temp shown by the cameras temp sensor, why did SG turn power on immediately
to 30% power It was a bit scary for sure ???
