Implements

ICameraV2..::..FastReadout

Remarks

Must thrown an exception if no connection is established to the camera. Must throw an exception if CanFastReadout returns False.

Many cameras have a "fast mode" intended for use in focusing. When set to True, the camera will operate in Fast mode; when set False, the camera will operate normally. This property should default to False.

Please note that this function may in some cases interact with ReadoutModes; for example, there may be modes where the Fast/Normal switch is meaningless. In this case, it may be preferable to use the ReadoutModes function to control fast/normal switching.

If this feature is not available, then CanFastReadout must return False.

This is only available for the Camera Interface Version 2

Exceptions

ExceptionCondition
ASCOM..::..NotConnectedExceptionMust throw an exception if the information is not available. (Some drivers may require an active connection in order to retrieve necessary information from the camera.)
ASCOM..::..PropertyNotImplementedExceptionMust throw an exception if CanFastReadout returns False.
