Ascom driver giving strange results in non atik software
« on: April 20, 2020, 12:17:57 am »
Hi all
I am trying to do some spectroscopic work using Demetra software and Prism as a fall back but both, connecting to ascom driver give berry “blurred” spectroscopic lines and look like gain setting is very high for my 460ex camera. I get correct images from Capture.
Anyone recognise this behaviour and maybe know a fix?
I have downloaded the current software bundle but the other programs still don’t seem to work proper with the camera...
Thanks

I have just had exactly the same experience!
I can't recall why I upgraded the Atik software, but I couldnt connect using the  new native drivers (in Prism). I therefore gave the ASCOM drivers a go... However, very high background ADU (3,500 - 5000) ensued (in a spectroscopy session - its obvious here as most of the image is background).
I have rolled back to the 'legacy' software now. I am sticking with thsi as long as possible!
