auto-focusing

My scope is up over 11ft in an observatory. So, use of a Bahtinov mask is not practical. For doing live stacking with this type of setup, what is the most practical method in SC to get a good focus of DSOs? I have two motor auto-focuser that are both ASCOM compatible: Moonlite and Celestron that can...

Re: Trius SX-814C

Thanks for confirming, Robin.

When I finally get a clear night, I'll give it a test drive and let you know how it goes.

Thx
Bruce

Re: Trius SX-814C

Hi Robin Weather has been horrible but I have tried it again indoors on 3 different occasions and it seems to be working fine. No crashing, freezing or error messages. The only issue or irritation is the slowness of the response. It might be due to USB2 data transmission with this camera??? It does ...

Re: Trius SX-814C

Hi Robin

I also tried the 814 with the SX ASCOM driver but same problem. It starts and then the program freezes up- both 3.1 and 3.2.

I think I am out of options at this point to use SC for this camera.

Re: Trius SX-814C

Robin - these might help too. They popped up after SC stopped.

Re: Trius SX-814C

Oh-boy... well, since then I got ASCOM loaded and Terry sent me new firmware but for a color issue. Anyway, I tried it in both v3.1.522 and v 3.2 and using Unknown Model and clicking on SXH814C once ASCOM automatically kicked in. In all cases SC starts up and the control panel appears (which it did ...

Re: Trius SX-814C

Hey Robin While I wait to get ASCOM help, I did reach out to Terry who I know and he said he would send you the SX814 specifics in that you may time to load them into SC. I hope you can do that so I can enjoy the camera. I would really prefer that if possible as I have no desire to mess with ASCOM. ...

Re: Trius SX-814C

Tried it. I installed, then uninstalled and re-installed again. Several error messages popped up which said to report to ASCOM yahoo group. They were too quick off the screen to note. I am a Mac user and this is all foreign to me. So, afraid I need to get rid of this camera I just got and stick with...

Re: Trius SX-814C

Unfortunately, I have no idea how to uninstall ASCOM so I am stuck.

Re: Trius SX-814C

Unknown model does highlight. When I click it, SC stops responding.
