I own many QHY cameras, and be aware due to the short back-focus of the QHY268M, cooling may outrun the heater on the window. I had this issue and had to adjust my cooling strategy to compensate for the sensor being closer to the window.

If I recall, the heater is always turned on, or is turned on when cooling is activated. There are no switches in INDI due to the camera itself controlling the dew heater.

Yes, that works best for me as well when doing something that has a nebula or galaxy in the center. Works best having those settings.

This also happens with the QHY600m binning 2x2 causes the image to be screwed up.. Not sure what's up.

If I set my QHY600c to 1X1, the image is a color image and shows RGGB.  

However if I set 2x2 binning mode, the image comes out B&W even though the image does show a BAYER pattern RGGB - But the image in the FITS viewer (also the preview image)  shows up as a mono image (no color)

Gonna look at the indi driver and see if it's in there, but I doubt it.  Looks like something with the fits viewer.

After compiling indi and 3rdparty from Git, I started getting Segfaults in libindidriver.so.1.9.3 with indi_qhy_ccd

Actually I can't find you email anywhere.

Ok. let me send this to QHY. if you like I can send them your email if you PM it to me. I will ask them to contact you.

Thanks.

I imagine you tried reverting to an older SDK and see if that works in K-Stars? I couldn't find anything wrong in the base indi-qhy driver(s) yet.

Ok. in the image you posted it shows 21.3.13. It does show 21.10.26 now?

I will do some digging.

One thing I see is your SDK is older.

How is your setup currently? Are you running INDI-Server on a raspberry pi?

Can you install the latest SDK?

Let me know.

Let me look at the QHY6 in the INDI-QHY driver. I believe the driver gets it's frame dimensions from the QHY SDK.

What version of SDK do you have installed? I will do some checking on my side.
