Thetype exposes the following members.
Returns the X offset of the Bayer matrix, as defined in SensorType.
Returns the Y offset of the Bayer matrix, as defined in SensorType.
Sets the binning factor for the X axis, also returns the current value.
Sets the binning factor for the Y axis, also returns the current value.
Returns the current camera operational state
Returns the width of the CCD camera chip in unbinned pixels.
Returns the height of the CCD camera chip in unbinned pixels.
Returns true if the camera can abort exposures; false if not.
Returns a flag showing whether this camera supports asymmetric binning
Camera has a fast readout mode
If true, the camera's cooler power setting can be read.
Returns a flag indicating whether this camera supports pulse guiding
Returns a flag indicatig whether this camera supports setting the CCD temperature
Returns a flag indicating whether this camera can stop an exposure that is in progress
Returns the current CCD temperature in degrees Celsius.
Set True to connect to the device hardware. Set False to disconnect from the device hardware. You can also read the property to check whether it is connected. This reports the current hardware state.
Turns on and off the camera cooler, and returns the current on/off state.
Returns the present cooler power level, in percent.
Returns a description of the device, such as manufacturer and modelnumber. Any ASCII characters may be used.
Descriptive and version information about this ASCOM driver.
A string containing only the major and minor version of the driver.
Returns the gain of the camera in photoelectrons per A/D unit.
Returns the maximum exposure time supported by StartExposure.
Minimium exposure time
Gets or sets Fast Readout Mode
Reports the full well capacity of the camera in electrons, at the current camera settings (binning, SetupDialog settings, etc.)
Index into the Gains array for the selected camera gain
Maximum value of Gain
Minimum value of Gain
Gains supported by the camera
Returns a flag indicating whether this camera has a mechanical shutter
Returns the current heat sink temperature (called "ambient temperature" by some manufacturers) in degrees Celsius.
Returns a flag indicating whether the image is ready to be downloaded fom the camera
The interface version number that this device supports. Should return 2 for this interface version.
Returns a flag indicating whether the camera is currrently in a PulseGuide operation.
Reports the actual exposure duration in seconds (i.e. shutter open time).
Reports the actual exposure start in the FITS-standard CCYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss[.sss...] format. The start time must be UTC.
Reports the maximum ADU value the camera can produce.
Returns the maximum allowed binning for the X camera axis
Returns the maximum allowed binning for the Y camera axis
The short name of the driver, for display purposes
Sets the subframe width. Also returns the current value.
Sets the subframe height. Also returns the current value.
Percent conpleted, Interface Version 2 only
Returns the width of the CCD chip pixels in microns.
Returns the height of the CCD chip pixels in microns.
Readout mode, Interface Version 2 only
List of available readout modes, Interface Version 2 only
Sensor name, Interface Version 2 only ## Mandatory must return an empty string if the sensor is unknown
Type of colour information returned by the the camera sensor, Interface Version 2 only
Sets the camera cooler setpoint in degrees Celsius, and returns the current setpoint.
Sets the subframe start position for the X axis (0 based) and returns the current value.
Sets the subframe start position for the Y axis (0 based). Also returns the current value.
Returns the list of action names supported by this driver.
Aborts the current exposure, if any, and returns the camera to Idle state.
Invokes the specified device-specific action.
Transmits an arbitrary string to the device and does not wait for a response. Optionally, protocol framing characters may be added to the string before transmission.
Transmits an arbitrary string to the device and waits for a boolean response. Optionally, protocol framing characters may be added to the string before transmission.
Transmits an arbitrary string to the device and waits for a string response. Optionally, protocol framing characters may be added to the string before transmission.
Dispose the late-bound interface, if needed. Will release it via COM if it is a COM object, else if native .NET will just dereference it for GC.
Activates the Camera's mount control sytem to instruct the mount to move in a particular direction for a given period of time
Launches a configuration dialog box for the driver. The call will not return until the user clicks OK or cancel manually.
Starts an exposure. Use ImageReady to check when the exposure is complete.
Stops the current exposure, if any.
