I start with an asi 294 mc pro, could you help me about the settings: exposure time, gain, contrast settings red and blue etc.I think using sharpcap as software with the camera.
Thank you all for your help and advice

Congratulations on the camera. I really like my ASI294MC. As with most things, exposure times and gain are highly dependent on your particular setup and seeing conditions. I use a 208mm F3.9 imaging Newtonian and find that 30 second exposures at 199 gain works pretty well as a general purpose setting. I like SharpCap for planetary imaging and polar alignment, but I use APT (Astrophotography Tool) for capture and highly recommend it for this camera. Also, check out APP (Astro Pixel Processor) for stacking and pre-processing and StarTools for post processing. There are many other packages, but none so inexpensive and intuitive IMO.

Hi Randy Roy,
Thanks to you for answering me.Personally I use a newton skywatcher 200/1000.
