Allow progressive cooling for ccd/cmos #34740
I would like to request to let users enable progressive cooling of cooled cameras. Point in case with ZWO 071 if we cool it down quickly to -20 or -10 , i am plagued with frost issues .
Only option is to cool it progressively down to -20 in steps of 5 or 10.

I only had this happen once therefore offer this as a suggestion only. My solution was to start a throw away 600sec luminance exposure and then start the cooling half way through (with the unticked 'Enforce') as the exposure was active. Once the exposure was finished I ticked the Enforce box and started my keeper sequence. What was your starting temperature? Mine was around 20 degrees c cooling to -10.

This is an issue only with ZWO 071 pro. I do not have this problem with zwo 1600 pro . My ambient temperatures in the winter has been less than 20c . RIght now only solution is to manually cool down when i do other tasks .
