Temp in SGP
« on: 13:53:49, 06 July, 2017 »
Can I trust the temp for the CCD in SGP ?   

I have noticed that as soon as my camera connects to SGP it shows a temperature of about -18 -19   Even in the warm evenings.     I'm now not sure if this can be trusted as how can a camera be @ -18 in seconds. ( Or can it )   I have even seen it state "warming up" to get to the set -15 for imaging.

A lot of CCD coolers default to max power on power up (SX certainly do) so if you are powering up the camera then the cooler runs at 100%, thats why you sometimes see it having to warm up to get up to the set point temperature.
