Hi, trying out SGP in favor of my current life with MaxIm.
While setting up a new laptop for testing, plus some new imaging equipment, I ran into trouble that isn’t really caused by SGP.
Could really use a little input on how to best resolve “driver problems by design”, possibly by ditching equipment.
The easy fix would of course be seeing a message like “yes, ASI native support is soon in beta”. Like the different native ASI drivers in FireCapture.
Anyway, running the SGP Equipment Profile Manager, after selecting “ASI Camera (1)” or “ASI Camera (2)”, I can select camera/gain/offset/USBspeed. Problem is that these settings does not save properly, and SGP always end up imaging with my ASI174MM that was intended as my new guidecam, getting ID0 in the selection list, never being able to save and use my ASI1600MMC which has become ID1. These IDs are the same no matter which order I physically connect cameras.
Asked the ZWO-forum, nothing yet: http://zwoug.org/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=6837
Thing is, even if I get things working in some uncontrolled way, I will not trust this odd ZWO/ASCOM driver architecture. I simply need to have a stable environment when going long distance mobile imaging.
The ASI174MM I received had a ruined sensor surface, so this is my opportunity of taking immediate actions.
Anyone fully happy with dual ASI driver and actually using two ASI cameras, for capture and guiding?
Experiences saying I should move on and get a “proper guidecamera”? That is, at least a separate driver.
(Well, have a spare original Lodestar but wanted a bigger chip this time.)
