ASI 183 with USB 2 creates extreme readout noise at one side

Hi, I did some tests with the ASI 183 MC Pro and found out that when connected at USB 2 it creates extreme readout noise at one side of the sensor.

As I would like to use the cam with StellarMate, I wonder if there are any settings I can change to eliminate this problem. I know the cam has 256 MB built in DDR memory actually to prevent readout noise due to slower connections.

I attach 2 photos, one with no noise at USB 3 and one with at USB 2. Both are 300 secs darks in the same environment taken at the same temperature

Hi,
this doesn't seem to be readoutnoise - it's ampglow. Why one shows it and the other not I can't say but it only should be exposuretime dependent.
Amp glow described in the CN imx183 testthread here: www.cloudynights.com/topic/599475-sony-i...d-asi-qhy-etc/page-2
