I have been using SGP3 for years with my ZWO ASI071 camera. Since my scope is mounted to a pier I have a rather long active USB3 cable connecting to my observatory computer. The only issue I have is that the ZWO ASI071 camera hangs on download after the first couple of images. I have to disconnect and reconnect the ASI071 to get it working again. At this point it will take 200 images without a problem… or until I do a meridian flip in which case the same situation occurs. I believe the problem was bus traffic on a long USB3 cable. I don;t know why bus traffic would be a problem since I only have the ASI071 on that active USB3.
In order to solve the problem I installed and I am using SGP4. I was told that the 64 bit version should help. It does not. Everything works great except the ZWO ASI071 hangs on download during the first few images — and then works perfectly after that point … or again until a meridian flip. I do not know if the 64 bit version is using 64 bit ASCOM drivers, nor do I know how yo check this.
Any other suggestions to alleviate hang on download. I can work around the issue but I would rather solve it so that I do not have to monitor the status.
