Re: How to reopen a minimized window?

I think I found a bug in AA7:

If I start AA7, then start the Star Atlas and minimize it, the Star Atlas will disappear from AA7 and cannot be made visible until AA7 is closed and restarted.

Re: Moonlite Autofocusing

I am not sure if this is an Astroart or Moonlite question. I setup my Moonlite focuser with the ASCOM driver and did an initial focus on Dubhe using the scope focuser with a Bahtinov mask per the Moonlite instructions. I then set the Moonlite draw tube at midpoint of its total steps which I calcula...

Re: Nikon D810 and D810A - two camera control

OK. I tried the LAA version of AA7 and connected the D810A as camera 1 in AA7 instance 1 and the D810 as camera 2 in instance 2 and it worked fine in test mode, with both cameras exposing simultaneously.

Thanks, may you test with LAA too?
For 20+ megapixels DSLRs, LAA can be useful.

You're welcome.

I'll try the LAA version tomorrow.

Nikon D810 and D810A - two camera control

I have tested the Nikon 1.10 driver and I can control a D810 and a D810A simultaneously using two instances of AA7 32bit (non LAA). I had an ASI 120mm mini using ASCOM running in instance one at the same time.

ZWO ASI 120mm Mini

The ZWO ASI 120mm Mini appears to be working perfectly under AA7 using the ZWO ASCOM driver. The use of subframes with 1x1 and 2x2 binning with 16bit data works fine.

Re: Camera and filter wheel no longer connecting

Are you using a powered USB hub? It might be necessary to power the hub down to get the camera and FW to reset. This is the SX Yahoo group. Terry Platte from SX monitors it. There have been some issues reported regarding filterwheels: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/starlightxpress/conversations...

Re: SX 814 m vs. c selection

Here's the SX readme notes: To install this plug-in copy the file d_sxvh.dll and this guide into the Astroart folder. Remember that the Starlight-Xpress USB software and drivers must be installed as well, you may download them from the SX website. SETUP Start Astroart and click Camera from the menu ...

Re: Camera and filter wheel no longer connecting

Sometimes when the PC boots it reorders the USB and com port assignments, especially if any new gear is present.

I guess you're using the native SX drivers?

Re: Camera and filter wheel no longer connecting

Have you changed the USB port for the cable from the Hub to the PC?

It's really tough to work through these issues when not at the PC.
