Here are some notes about my experience with the new QHY - 268C
First off, the camera is amazing - 16BIT and very sensitive. APS-C. It is much longer than any other camera I have.
On KStars - EKOS - The default camera resolution is 6252 x 4176, this works well with focus module and capture module.
For some reason the Alignment module does not work in bin 1x1 mode it brings up a non-compliant resolution. BUT if you use 2x2 binning on the alignment module, it works well.
The INDI panel works well. I could change the Camera modes (there are 3 gain modes available).
Very happy with the camera, and very happy it does work with KSTARS with some workarounds, but I imaged all night without an issue.
If you have any questions, I will share my experiances.
I am interested in getting this camera. How has it performed over the last few months? Any issues or workarounds? I would also like to know how big a typical file size is and time to receive it. Anything you can add is most welcome. Thank you.

Thanks for your report on the qhy268c on kstars.
Id be interested to know what work around did you do.
I'm struggling to get correct temp reading. Ccd tab and indi panel show 0.7 even at 17/18degrees room temp?
Also I am unable to to turn on cooling with the "tick" in ccd tab sometimes.
Also struggle to take test shots. (darks) ekos gets stuck on 0 seconds left while indi panel reports exposure complete downloading image. And unsuccessfully showing me image in fits viewer as I believe it hasn't successfully downloaded.
What version of qhy driver are you using?
My indi control tab sais mine is 2.7 with interface 22 SDK 20.7.26 if that makes any sence.
I'm really looking forward to working with this camera but frustrating times with it a bit at the minute so any help or recommendation would be great fully received
Sonny, thanks so much for the link share.
This was full kstars version with your working nightly build? As when i downloaded to windows it seemed to be the whole kstars application,right?
Ive installed to computer to try! Thanks!
Still, is there a way i can get this working version onto my pi4 kstars?
Images seem to download much quicker when i run kstars on the pi itself....
