Hey I’m still working on the astrophotography autoguider, sky was clear tonight and I did my first outdoor test. There’s a huge problem. The camera simply isn’t sensitive enough even with exposure times of 3 seconds, there’s simply no stars visible for most of the sky. I can only see the biggest and brightest stars. For the project to work, there should be at least one star visible anywhere I can point it at.
The difference between making an autoguider out of OpenMV and buying a camera meant for autoguiding is that those dedicated cameras are all natively monochrome. I suspect I’m getting like 1/3 of the light hitting the sensor in comparison to those ones.
Is there a way to get rid of the RGB bayer filter in front of the sensor?
OH OH or if you can tell me where to buy a mono sensor for the H7 Plus?! How hard is it to solder one of those at home?
