Questions from a newbie:
I’ve upgraded to an SBIG STT-8300M with an FW8G-STT filter wheel (integrated guide camera), and I’ve struggled to get everything online with Neb/PHD2, CCDOps, or SGPro. (I’ve been using Neb/PHD2 to control a DSLR on an AVX mount for two years.) PHD2 manages this mount really well, so SGP seems the way to go. But I can’t get very far in the configuration. At the moment I’m stuck with two road blocks.
I’ve searched the web and this forum, and tried what I can, but I’m still stuck. Any help would be much appreciated.
- I can acquire images with the guide camera or the imaging camera, but I cannot connect to both simultaneously. I’ve set up PHD2 with SGP AGI Guider.
- I cannot connect to the filter wheel, apparently. In Sequencer I connect to “SBIG Camera” and “SBIG Filter Wheel”. In SBIG CFW Options (Color Filter Wheel???), Filter wheel type, I’ve tried Auto Detect and also FW8-8300. With either, Sequencer shows a connection, but Control Panel/Filters does not.
The SBIG gear is connected to a PC via USB, and the firmware is current-- sttusb.bf2 v1.10, sttga.bf2 2.62.
