Hello All,

Does anyone have experience with GStar EX-2 cameras?
I'm using a 10" Dob and everything is so bright with this camera in view. The attached picture is of Jupiter and some of it's moons.
I can't see any detail in the planet at all
I got the exact same problem with the NexImage Solar camera too.
I've reduced the focal length and re-focussed etc. I have even put a 50% ND filter on the end too.
I have also set the camera up for planetary viewing options too

I would be very grateful for any help.

Thanks

Hi Azhar - - sorry I missed this. - I assume you are using the Gstar software - GCOM or manual control?

In any event you need to turn off AGC ( auto Gain Control) and the use the shutter speed to get the best pic. With planets you will be down around the 1/350 and lower even 1/1500

Thanks Dave.

I managed to sort it out in the end and got some very decent images. I have that weekend off for the night viewing so I'll probably come along Saturday night and will bring out the camera.

Bye for now,

Azhar
