I’m using Astroberry on a RPi4 and a ASI294MC Pro cam connected via USB 3.0. When doing a full size video preview in Ekos capture module, I get a max. frame rate of approx. 3 fps. I this normal or is there room for improvement? When I played with the USB bandwidth setting (set from 40 to 70), I once managed to get 10 fps, but this was not reproducible. Now I’m back on 3 fps regardless of the bandwidth setting.
Firecapture (on the same RPi4) manages to get 10-12 fps max.
What are your fps’ using ASI USB 3.0 cams? Am I missing something, or am I doing something wrong?
Thanks and CS

Frame rates can also be bottlenecked by the frame exposure time.
