I have been working with the distributor and QSI/Atik to try to resolve my issue in connecting my QSI690 to SGP.
QSI/Atik has said that I need to use the ASCOM Camera option. However, in my SGP Equipment Manager there is no ASCOM Camera, I have QSI Camera/FilterWheel and QSI Camera1/FilterWheel1. Here is the feedback I got through the Distributor from QSI/Atik:
“Atik has been able to provide a bit more information on the drivers today; confirming that their main focus is on the ASCOM drivers solely, and as such the support they can provide is for that platform. They have let me know that since this change in direction, applications trying to use the native drivers may not work with the driver packages and plugins released since the focus on ASCOM began. They have let me know however that Sequence Generator Pro should be able to utilize the ASCOM platform; and in fact many of their users connect their QSI or Atik equipment to the program through that platform. Since this doesn’t appear to be showing up for you they would suggest ensuring that you have installed the most recent version of the platform; and if issues persist it may be pertinent to try uninstalling and reinstalling this.”
I have the latest ASCOM platform and NET Framework version installed. I have done a “repair” on the ASCOM installation, but still do not see the ASCOM Camera option in the Equipment Manager for SGP. Should it be there? If so, do you recommend removing and re-installing the ASCOM platform per the recommendation from ATIK/QSI?
