Frame and Focus

I have noticed that while trying to learn and work with SGP that when I run frame and focus, I get this error.

Error capturing during frame and focus.

What does this mean? and can it be fixed…

Further to my message I am running only simulated values. No real equipment installed.

Use the “Camera V2 Simulator”. The “Simulator” camera doesn’t seem to work as well. Beyond that I’ll need logs to help out. See here:



I don’t know why you guy’s don’t just remove the ‘Simulator’ option due to it’s instability as the V2 options seems to work quite well.


It’s an ascom camera. I guess we technically could pull it from the list
but as is we just display all ASCOM options.
