QHY IMGOH Planetary/Deep Sky/Guide camera Cooled ccd Cameras Planetary / Cooled Deep Sky Mono Guide camera with high frame rates & guide port! The IMG0H is a versatile new camera using the latest SONY EXview ICX618AL CCD sensor and a 14bit high speed AD converter. The IMG0H has high QE (almost 70%) making it a sensitive planetary and guide camera. ASCOM 4 driver Camera shows up in Device Manager as: Astroimaging - QHY5II Start Sharp Cap and it finds: QHY 5 II M and connects - however if i start to capture there is just a dark screen (given it day time and the camera has plenty of light I would have expected basically a white screen) Start QGVideo and it just says No Camera Detected. To do that, I have uninstalled and reinstalled all drivers from qhyccd.com work. So far, I only find these drivers to work. For those who have same difficulty like me may want to use these drivers which can be downloaded from: QHY CCD software Download. Take note to download the QHY5 update driver as well. And you must also use the QHY5 ASCOM. When the camera is freshly connected to USB INDI driver can't connect to it. After I ran qhyccdtest INDI driver was able to connect to the camera, but only if indiserver was run as root. Interestingly USB VID/PID changed after running qhyccdtest (I suppose camera does some kind of re-enumeration). All QHY CMOS Cameras are supported by SharpCap. QHY CCD cameras are known to work in SharpCap 3.1. Older QHY CMOS cameras may require the use of an ASCOM driver. Celestron / Imaging Source Cameras. Imaging Source DFK and DMK cameras are supported by SharpCap.

Raspberry Pi 12MB Color Sensor (external link)Since May 1st 2020 a High Quality camera sensor was released for the Raspberry Pi. This 12 MB sensor is now made available for ASCOM clients via this ASCOM driver which enables applications to make color images of up to 240 seconds duration. The sensor (separately available) provides a low entry astrophotography high resolution color camera. Instructions for installing and running this software is included in the included readme file.

SharpCap supports Basler cameras for high speed capture and also provides a unique LX mode with certain models that allows exposures beyond the normal limits of the camera.
All Altair Astro cameras are supported in SharpCap.
All ZWO cameras are supported in SharpCap.
All QHY CMOS Cameras are supported by SharpCap. QHY CCD cameras are known to work in SharpCap 3.1. Older QHY CMOS cameras may require the use of an ASCOM driver.
Imaging Source DFK and DMK cameras are supported by SharpCap. Imaging Source cameras are now sold under the Celestron Brand as Skyris and NexImage cameras – these are also supported by SharpCap
SharpCap supports FlyCapture based Point Grey Cameras. USB, GigE and Firewire cameras are supported. SharpCap does not yet support Spinnaker cameras.
SharpCap supports iNova cameras.
SharpCap supports the SV305 directly and the SV105 and SV205 via their webcam drivers.
SharpCap (from version 3.2) supports Atik cameras without needing to use an ASCOM driver.
SharpCap (from version 3.2) supports Moravian Instruments CMOS cameras without needing to use an ASCOM driver. CCD models may also work.
There are a vast number of webcams and frame grabbers on the market. In general, SharpCap should work with any of them, but some cameras/grabbers have buggy drivers which may prevent them from working correctly with SharpCap. In any case, the controls that are available in SharpCap are determined by the driver – SharpCap just shows the controls that the driver makes available. Sometimes more controls are available in the ‘Video Capture Pin’ and ‘Video Capture Filter’ dialogs which are also provided by the device driver.
SharpCap (up to version 3.0) still supports LX modified webcams that are controlled either by serial or parallel interfaces.
How is SharpCap Different for Webcams?
Most basic capture applications, such as AmCap and similar programs require the camera to be restarted completely when moving between preview and capture mode. This can be a problem for modern webcams as the restart may through away camera settings that you have just adjusted by re-initializing the camera back to an ‘auto’ state. SharpCap can move between preview and capture mode without needing to stop and restart the camera, which sidesteps this problem completely, as well as allowing captures to start more quickly.
Additionally, SharpCap allows the images being captured from a webcam to be processed by all of it’s sophisticated features available to dedicated Astro cam users – for instance Live Stacking and Polar Alignment are both usable with images coming from a webcam or frame grabber providing that a long enough exposure can be set to start seeing details and/or stars.
SharpCap supports cameras that have an ASCOM driver. Unfortunately not all ASCOM drivers are created equal – much like webcam drivers. While SharpCap works correctly with most ASCOM drivers, in some cases the driver may have bugs or may not follow the ASCOM standard in quite the way that SharpCap expects.
