Re: iOptron Minitower - Error connecting to ASCOM mount. Object required.

Ok, so a deeper look makes it clear that the iOptron driver is not co-operating with the request SharpCap makes to get the possible axis rates back. Please could you run the ASCOM conformance check on your driver as described here: https://forums.sharpcap.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=170&p=722&hilit=co...

Re: iOptron Minitower - Error connecting to ASCOM mount. Object required.

Ok, thanks for the update - same problem again basically that I can't persuade the mount to give me the list of rates that it can slew at. I will have to look at this again.

cheers,

Re: DSLR functionality

Thanks for the further feedback folks. Sadly the support for Canon DSLRs is not going to make it into the next (3.1) release purely because it would delay the release too much. Hopefully I will find time to do it for SharpCap 3.2. Just to give an indication, I'm hoping to make a public beta of 3.1 a...

Have a look at the forum list and you will now see the Alpha testers forum - you'll find the download link for the 3.1 alpha in that forum.

Re: ASI120MM problems

Hi Richard, what you are seeing is definitely a problem with the frames locking up after a while in SharpCap 2.9 (the fact that the framerate is currently 0.0 fps is pointing at this). It's difficult to be sure if it is a hardware incompatibility between the camera and the new computer or some weird...

Re: iOptron Minitower - Error connecting to ASCOM mount. Object required.

Hi, I believe that I have a fix for this problem already in the alpha build of SharpCap 3.1, but I have no iOptron mount myself to test with. If you are interested in testing this potential fix and future changes if the current fix is not quite right then please let me know and I will add you to the...

Ah, good point, the status update notifications wipe out the cancel option - I will fix that in 3.1

Re: Helpful IronPython libraries

Hi,

I'm afraid I'm away at the moment and don't have access to the source code to check on this for you. Will have a look when I get back at the end of the week.

Cheers.

Re: QHY5V Camera

Hi, I believe that the qhy5v is an older model of qhy camera that is not supported by the qhy sdk that Sharpcap uses, so the only options to use it would be via a directshow (wdm) driver. I don't have this camera so I can't advise on which drivers to use but you might find an answer on the qhy forum...
