Hi Noah

Sorry to hear that the challenges continue but thanks for sharing what you've learned. As Infinity is my main imaging software for the Horizon, I'll stick with the 4.2.2.9 version for now as you suggested. I really hope that Atik will hold off on releasing a new Core version until it's been fully tested but it does sound that success may be close at hand! Do you think you'll hear back from support when the driver issue is resolved?

Installed Dusk with the new core software today.  Now, all I get in Infinity is an orange "Connecting."  No connection in Sharpcap or Dusk either.  Seriously, are these updates even tested?  I was really looking forward to trying out the autofocuser feature in Dusk tonight, but now I'll have to uninstall and go back to the previous core software version.  Very frustrating after spending 2 hours setting up.

Went back to the previous version and then the one before that.  Nothing works now.  This new core update has completely messed up my computer.  Uninstalled everything, ran CCleaner to remove anything in the registry before installing each version.  No go.  I went through this last year when the Horizon first came out, never thought I'd be going through this again.

Phil, try reinstalling the ASCOM platform, then version 4.2.2.9.

I have my Horizon OSC back working fine in Infinity and SG Pro but not Sharpcap (But it never did before in Sharpcap). The Dusk version seems to connect to Sharpcap, but then won't connect in Infinity (and vice versa in 5.0.0.4).

Best bet, stay with 4.2.2.9 until it is fixed.

Update:

I finally got Infinity going again after rolling back to the previous version.  Installed the latest version of ASCOM (6.4 SP1).  That may have been the difference maker.

Hi

Similar issues as others, I did try the latest version 5.0.0.6 and some progress in that Dusk seemed to detect my OSC Horizon camera.

But my issue remained that couldn't get Infinity to display images in replay mode.

Could anyone suggest a workaround for this?

I have reverted back to version 4.2.2.9 for now

Thanks

Chris

Chris, did you <tick> to upgrade both drivers and ASCOM drivers in 5.0.0.6?

I managed to get my Horizon apparently working in Infinity, SG Pro and Sharpcap. I say apparently as this was a daytime test and  I could only test for light/dark detection (I didn't make a tinfoil pinhole lens). The weather has since been awful preventing a proper night time test. Here, I might have empathy with Atik as they are located close by and will no doubt also be struggling with local testing. I have been yo-yo-ing between 5.0.0.x and 4.2.2.9 for a while, so keen to see this resolved.

I would wait for DUSK to emerge from beta-testing before attempting that.

Anyone downloaded and used the new package including the "Dusk" software?
-Craig

I tried it a week ago. It would not connect to my 460EX.  So, I uninstalled it including deleting the device from Device Manager and any folders and re-installed the previous (non Dusk) version and all was fine.

I have tried out all versions from the very first one (with ATIK 16200). It is improving but still suffering from many bugs or annoying things. e.g. last version tried with ASCOM focuser but I could not manage to work together. The controls for the focuser were disabled though it was connected. The focuser moved to zero .... that was all.

I have provided feedback to support.

It has to be considered as a Beta version and not ready for serious usage. Still staying with Artemis. Old, but straight and reliable.

I guess a couple of more release and it will become usable in some months. Stay patient....

Hi

I am getting very confused

I installed the latest software version 5.0.0.6 on my other laptop Surface Pro 4, and everything works as it should including Infinity (Pic taking - Pin hole variety) and the Replay mode for processing images.

Based on this apparent success, I re-installed version 5.0.0.6 on my Astro laptop Latitude rugged laptop 4114, and although the camera was recognised this time, lots of crashes. Then for no good reason (all are USB ports are 3s) I switched USB ports for plugging in my camera and as if by magic everything is working as it should do.

Not sure what the lesson was, but the latest 5.0.06 version seems to be working.

Thanks

Chris

Well, that's good news Chris. Do you use any of the other programs that rely on the ASCOM drivers like SharpCap, SG Pro, etc? If so, are they working too?

Thanks!
Craig

I've been waiting since 6th April to properly test 5.0.0.6 under dark conditions, but it has been cloudy every night ever since except the one night when I was 250 miles away.  However, I got it working daytime with a pinhole tinfoil camera, but that doesn't test gain and colour capabilities etc. It did, at least, connect to Sharpcap, Infinity and SG Pro when in earlier 5.x.x.x versions it would connect in one but not another.  Looks like this weekend might be more promising. Forecast is 26 C. Who says climate change isn't happening!

 Hi Noah!

Wow, 26C has to be pushing record territory for you for this time of year. We're on the other side of the spectrum with temps averaging below normal most days. I read that climate change is warming the arctic regions faster than others and that's slowing down the jet stream. A slower jet stream allows for more oscillations...cold dips and warm spikes that we haven't had before.

Anyway, fingers crossed on your software testing...and decent weather to go with it!

Well, it's been awhile since our last posts on the new Core software. I would like to finally give it try this weekend so I was wondering if 5.0.0.6 version seems to be working for those that have downloaded it? How about the driver functionality with Sharpcap, etc?

Thanks!
Craig

Hi Craig

I only use the Infinity software and none of the other items mentioned (knowingly)

Have reverted back to older version pre-5.0.0.1, as I am still struggling for various unrelated reasons.
 
Thanks

Chris
