I am confident in it’s performance, even @ 8 bits, I did learn a few things though about working with CCD’s, one is, thermal noise, yeah, even with NO power its still there, and on the breadboard it has little room for any air circulation underneath, so I had to compensate for this “dark current” by taking at least 5 dark frames and comparing the frame with the least amount pixel depth and then averaging the other frames together at their higher RMS #’s and subtracting that from the low pixel numbered frame and that gave me a pretty good representation of the most stable dark current values.
I converted the raw data from the spectral images from the other day using the formula I previously mentioned (10ᶺ(-B2))*100 and wanted to demonstrate how it is utilized in Excel: The image below is the same […]
