Starlight Xpress SXV-M25C

Post by dthomson39 » 06 Jun 2019, 17:54

HI all - new to this forum and CCD's in general so apologies for asking what might be regarded as dumb questions. I have been imaging with a DSLR for a while and getting OK results. A member of our local astro group offered to sell me the above camera and I am trying to use it with Astroart 7. I can process the images OK but wondered if I can use it with the camera and guiding function - I usually use a separate guide camera but that doesn't seem to be how the software works unless I have that wrong - it refers to an Imaging.guide camera and also an extra guide camera. Does it use the imaging camera for guiding?

There is a driver for the SXV type cameras (SXVH) but the 25 model is not listed.

Any advice would be welcomed.

Hi, I don't understand well the question:
do you mean than you have both the M25C and the SXV Guider camera? If yes, just enable the option "SXV guider" in the plugin. The one for the M25C is available here: http://www.msb-astroart.com/ccd_en.htm#ccdsxsxv ("M25 version 2.00". The plugin for the "H" series cannot control the M25).
