Can anybody please help as I’m having a nightmare . I’m posting this both here and on software bisque site
I’ve just purchased a new cmos camera , an Altair Astro hypercam pro 183m.
My mount is a Paramount MYT using SkyX as the direct drive in Sequence Generator pro. Altair have been great trying to sort some of it out and I’ve had several re-writes of the ascom driver and we thought we had sorted it all , as I was testing it all in the house first before installing it in my observatory. However, when I installed it in my observatory all my problems began as I’d not used all software together.
When I connect using Sgpro and before connecting to SkyX direct drive it all seems to work ok. However as soon as I connect the SkyX direct drive and go to take a focus image it takes the image and says downloading but just freezes. I then have to press ‘ control, alt , delete ‘ to start task manager. As soon as task manager displays it says “ SkyX not responding “ momentarily. This then disappears and the image then downloads. Altair have been great but my head is done in … I don’t know if it’s a PC , Sgpro, SkyX or driver problem . I am using USB2 as I don’t have USB 3 on my pc which is running win10 all software and drivers are updated
It seems like to me it’s some sort of communication problem but who knows. It’s just very strange.
Hope someone can help
