White screen from camera stream #37256
Hello, I have just start using my new camera ZWO ASI294MC Pro. I am using Bahtinov mask for focusing and the best way how to focus is with lifeview. Previously with DSLR (Canon 600D) it was working, but with ASI294 I am getting only white screen. And FPS is oscillating around 0,5. What am I doing wrong?

Are you using 8- or 16-bit mode? 16-bit doesn't seem to work for video.

Also check the gain of the camera. The KStars FITS viewer for some reason displays a white image when all pixel values are 0 (or perhaps even close to 0) so you may want to increase the gain of the camera.

Yes, that was the root cause. After change to 8-bit is video working. Thank you
