Strange pattern in Light Pollution Tool
Found the cable! Is 1m ok?
1m is fine I think. 😉
Hey Lucky Budd. I had the same gradient problem with my ASI294mc pro. What offset setting are you using? I was able to mitigate this effect by lowering my offset value to 10. There seems to be a lot of variability with the amount of background noise in this sensor. According to ZWO, Sony says these sensors are all within parameters.
There are extensive threads about this on Cloudy Nights.
Hope this helps
@neaptide hey John, Thank you!! I have been working with a tech as ZWO as my sensor seems to be particularly noisy. I will try your offset trick! It seems to be particularly accented when I use my IDAZ NBZ filter, perhaps it brings up the background? The data this camera captures is awesome, but for an advertised "Low Noise" camera there seems to be a lot necessary to get rid of the banding! 🙂
