Many thanks for the update on this Collin. I'm not bad at making tea and coffee. Developing though? Completely inexperienced.

Thanks to the great work by Mr. Collin, we now have proper documentation for this driver: www.indilib.org/ccds/svbony-sv305-cameras.html

Please let me know if you think the driver could use any improvements. Kudos to Collin for this great driver!

Thanks for your reply. I’m very new in this game, but I will try to check if I have the latest driver and the latest software on the stellarmate. I have two cameras attached to the stellarmate, the other camera is an altair 183c where there are no problems. So wondering if banding should be a power issue, but maybe I should consider trying a power hub in between.

Hello !

<< Thanks to the great work by Mr. Collin >>

You're welcome Jasem. In facts, I'm just a selfish guy. I wanted my camera to work on my setup ;-)

Best regards !

Hi Casper,

It's just a guess.

On my setup, I use a 12v powered hub, powering my DSLR, my raspberry with Stellarmate OS (Thanks Jasem, great tool !) and my SV305.
The raspberry doesn't power anything, and I don't have any banding. No banding on my SV305 PRO either (direct laptop USB3 powering, for planetary).

The 183c power regulation is certainly much better than the SV305 one.

Best regards,

Thx8411

Hello !

@Toby

I got the last Mac OS X SDK from SVBONY, and submitted a pull request which should (hopefully) work.
Stay tuned.

Best regards,

​​​​I have SV105 and using V4L2 driver it works good, but I bought better cable. Rarely freezes, but it is not so sensitive and 0.5s max exposure time is disaster. Also for my version you have to set Gain to 67, because in 68 it goes back to 0 amd 100 is around 40 actually and 67 is 100.

Hello Outta,

Thanks for your report, but SV105 and SV205 are completely different devices.
Did you look at this page ? : indilib.org/ccds/web-cameras.html

Best regards,

Hi Colin,

Yea, I was actually trying to reply to post from previous page but forum does not. work well woth quotes in mobile so I used just quick reply and post seems out of. contex.

I use exactly that driver that you linked and it works almost as good for me as I would expect only issue is extremely low native exposure of cam itself so. it basically it cannot be called astronomy camera.

Hello,

Don't expect miracles from a 50$ camera. In my mind, SV105 and SV205 can be used as "Moon electronic eyepieces", or cheap planetary imagers, but no more.
In my opinion, the cheapest "Astronomy" cameras are the T7C, and better, the T7M. The T7M is a nice guiding cam.

The SV305 does a great job for it's price : Guiding, Planetary and some easy Deep Sky.

I will perhaps buy an SV305M Pro to test it on lucky imaging in the coming days.
A mono IMX290 should give some results.

Best regards,

Thx8411

Hi Colin, so my new SV305M Pro is on my desk and now I would like to ask you for small support: how can I build the driver?
Thank you
