Hi Nick,
I run Parallels Desktop for all my astro equipment at the moment and hope to change that entirely some day. Thank you for the release. I hope to give R1.00 a test run on my 11000 if the clouds ever pass. It seemed to work just fine on the bench top in my garage.
Sincerely,
Mark

It's been a little quiet on the updates I'm afraid, I've just moved house and currently celebrating my 40th!

Things are starting to return to normality and I have some interesting ideas in the pipeline..

During the train commute, I've been working on a new OpenGL implementation of the display mechanism for the Example App - it's fast.. and able to display 4096x4096 at 50 frames/sec (at least!).

I thought I would put a youtube video of the new ExampleApp live view in action (although the video was still uploading to youtube as I write this):

I have a couple of adjustments, and tweaks but the beauty about this is that the image is now captured from the camera and processed in realtime by utilising parallel processing power of the graphics chip itself - just like a supercomputer!

Hi Nick, can this driver be used to allow software such as Nebulosity to connect to the camera?

Thanks,
Tony

Hi Tony,

All applications need support written into them to support drivers. These drivers will allow Craig to add support for the entire range ;)

Here's the current release 1.05 Example Application that I'm preparing the driver release for:

R1.08 now out: http://stargazerslounge.com/topic/192900-atik-osx-drivers-r100-example-app/?p=2185695

The main thing here is a fast display interface for the ExampleApp and a couple of bug fixes for the drivers - including a guide port crash fix that affects legacy cameras only (i.e. 16IC for example).

R. 1.22 now out and available:
http://stargazerslounge.com/topic/192900-atik-osx-drivers-r100-example-app/?p=2263424

This includes support for the ATIK One 6.0 and represents a considerable improvement over previous releases.

I will be syncing the driver code base shortly with ATIK once the 10.6.8 variant is done and the developer manual & design diagrams are updated.

R1.30 Now out (Re: ATIK OSX Drivers R1.00)
« Reply #9 on: May 14, 2014, 08:51:56 am »
R1.30 13-May-2014 ExampleApp for 10.8
R1.30 Driver frameworks for both 10.8 64bit and 10.6.8 Universal (32/64 bit)

Available here: http://stargazerslounge.com/topic/192900-atik-osx-drivers-r100-example-app/?p=2323410

This has a quite a few changes and fixes since R1.22! If you're using R1.22 I would strongly advise moving to R1.30 for stability.
