Re: Atik Horizon 1 Will Not Align Stars

Been playing with this today. A few corrections..... Just realised that my success with Sensor Analysis and Smart Histogram was with ASI224mc and ASI294mc, which works superbly and is really good as regards guiding the user towards correct Gain/Exposure/Histogram settings. I tried everything today t...

Re: Atik Horizon 1 Will Not Align Stars

All I can report Robin is that when I connect in (say) Sequence Generator Pro there remains an (Atik) 'Camera chooser' and that permits you to select Low, Medium, High and is otherwise inflexible regarding gain (like with a CCD). Franky, this 'Chooser' is really annoying as it pops up hidden behind ...

Re: Atik Horizon 1 Will Not Align Stars

I have an (original) Atik Horizon and recently purchased a ZWO ASI294mc. I now use both with Sharpcap. What I particularly like about Sharpcap is the way it handles image scaling and zoom. However, as a regular (four year) user of Atik Infinity I found the transition quite difficult. Here are a few ...

Re: Hyperstar set up: spacers or no spacers?

I messed with Hyperstar Collimation for many evenings trying a methodology described in an article in another forum where you start by inserting thin 0.030' shims between the parts. Frankly, I struggled to get this right and wasn't happy. However, the author concluded by saying after collimation his...

Re: Atik Horizon

Hi Robin, Atik has released core software versions, 5.0.0.1, 5.0.0.2 (etc) and now we are up at 5.0.0.6 it appears (in daylight test) as if Sharpcap is now recognising and connecting to the Atik Horizon OSC with control over Gain; mono or colour; cooler etc. It has also fixed some similar problems i...

Re: Atik Horizon

Hi Robin, Here are the two dialogues; to the left is that accessed via SharpCap and 'SHOW' optiosn; to the right is that accessed via SG Pro via 'SETTINGS'. Note that the driver number is the same for each 7.0.8.25151. The SG Pro version is inviting me to select Colour (or Mono) Camera and also Low,...

Re: Atik Horizon

Robin... I have now deleted the Atik "Core Software with Dusk" and instead installed the "without Dusk" version. It now works fine with SharpCap (albeit in daytime test) although I think I have to prior set the Gain in Atik's Infinity and hope that the camera remembers. In SG Pro the ASCOM driver (v...

Re: Atik Horizon

I concur Robin. Tonight, I downloaded a new version of the Atik core software in the hope that the known Atik Horizon OSC ASCOM driver problem was sorted. Now it became very conspicuous that the camera did keep disconnecting and reconnecting for no apparent reason. This occured in both Infinity and ...

Re: Atik Horizon

Hi Robin, I think I have identified the issue and have written to Atik Support as I think it is a problem with the new driver (released last week) that is designed to permit the setting of Gain through ASCOM. What now happens in (say) Sequence Generator Pro is that this dialogue box appears. Dialogu...
