whare are the expsour settings on a dbk?- i only get a tab when i click on exposure a handful of 1/xx setting with a slider- i feel certain im missing something here
I don't have mine ready to hand, so I can't tell you explicitly which menu option you use. It's part of the camera properties, if you're using IC Capture.
The way IC Capture works you must have a camera plugged in to see those settings and although I have my imaging laptop with me right now my cameras are 250 miles away in a box in an observatory dome ... so I can't check.
I'll see if I can find a Help file that lists them ...

Well, great ... the Help file for Exposure Control says the Exposure bar is part of the camera and only appears when the camera is hooked up. Apparently the Imaging Source cameras have firmware settings that toggle this feature on when you connect.
take a look when you can- for some reason, mine doesnt show all these exposure options your supposed to have
I will be back at the observatory this coming Friday. What codec are you using? That might make a difference ... I'm assuming that when you start IC Capture it can actually recognize the camera ... can you get an image at all and just not change the exposure, or are you getting no images at all?
im using y800, i can change the expoure- like 1/25- 1/xxx etc- but not many to choose from- i need to use the brightness level- i do get an image on the screen and 'correct' color when i push GB- but then going into registax, i end up with a greyscale image even after i push GB debayer under options- i tried WXastro and firecapture, they're nice programs but a mess with this DBK-- so im trying to figure out ic capture the best i can- this debayer is ending up another headache trying get the final stack in color
The color thing is a known issue with a fix, but I can't remember it at the moment. You can join the Yahoo group and read about it; and it's also mentioned at the Astronomy Cameras web site if I remember correctly.
I've noticed that the exposure levels available vary by codec somewhat. I normally image in monochrome (mostly do solar imaging with my camera at the moment).
