Field Value

Return Value

Short integer index into the ReadoutModes array of string readout mode names indicating the camera's current readout mode.

Implements

ICameraV2..::..ReadoutMode

Remarks

ReadoutMode is an index into the array ReadoutModes, and selects the desired readout mode for the camera. Defaults to 0 if not set. Throws an exception if the selected mode is not available.

It is strongly recommended, but not required, that driver authors make the 0-index mode suitable for standard imaging operations, since it is the default.

Please see ReadoutModes for additional information.

This is only available for the Camera Interface Version 2

Exceptions

ExceptionCondition
ASCOM..::..InvalidValueExceptionMust throw an exception if set to an illegal or unavailable mode.
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.)
