QSEye Lite

By Joe Shimkus

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


"Lite" version of the QSEye image acquisition program for Quantum Scientific Imaging, Inc. 500/600-series CCD cameras.

QSEye Lite is limited, in comparison to QSEye, in that QSEye Lite does not allow:
- control of anti-blooming
- control of gain
- control of special 'first filter' settings
- dithering via PHD
nor a count value other than one (1) when submitting exposure requests (although there is no limit on the total requests enqueued).

Provides control of camera exposure parameters including filter selection (if camera is equipped with a filter wheel).
Provides graphical subframe selection.
Provides visual focusing capability augmented with FWHM (Full-Width, Half Maximum) and HFR (Half-Flux Radius) measurements.

An unlimited number of exposure requests can be submitted for automatic processing.

Image data can be saved in FITS (Flexible Image Transfer System) or TIFF formats.

What's New in Version 1.3

Addresses an issue with App Nap during long exposure imaging.

Adds support for all current QSI 600-series cameras.

Removes demosaic option.
