View Full Version : Higher max gain possible?

Hello, I have a DBK21 which I use for the planets. I just used it for the first time for Saturn. At 15 fps and f/35 the image is rather dim. At the maximum gain setting the sky background is still almost completely black, so I believe a higher gain setting (if available) could have been useful. Is the maximum limited by some hard limit in the chip, or could even higher gains be programmed?

I am very sorry, but higher gain is not possible. Gain produces noise. That is not wanted.
