Correct Settings for Omegon veTEC 16000 C
I'm an absolut beginner with APP and have a question how to find the correct and best working settings for the Omegon veTEC 16000 C cam.
The cam uses a CMOS Chip (Panasonic MN34230). Are there other user around using this cam or a cam with the same CMOS Chip?
Thank you very much for your support.
In principle there shouldn't be special settings, unless APP is not able to see the mosaic pattern itself (in that case you need to manually force it to do that). Make sure to use darkflats for flats with exposure times of around 1-2 seconds, bias also with exposure times of about 0.5 seconds.
Thank you. I thought I have to use flats with exposure time exactly as the exposure time of the light frames?
Hi, sorry for the delay. No, flats simply need to have a proper exposure, not clipping the histogram on the left or right. You do need dark-flats (it's like a bias, but with exposure set to that of the flats).
