I am recovering from a hard disk crash and re-setup of software, and at the same time I am using my old sxvf-h9 ccd. In the past I have connected to this camera directly with other software, but in this case I am using the ascom driver because I don’t see another way to connect with SGP. I am doing a number of short, 1s exposures with MetaGuide dithering in between - and after about 20 frames the camera freezes during download in a bad way and I have to close sgp and disconnect the camera - then reconnect. In the past the camera has been reliable - but I’m not sure if the issue here is related to sgp or the ascom driver.
So my questions are - can I connect to the camera directly with its drivers, or do I need to use the ascom interface? My other question is - is there a workaround for this issue. A long log is attached. I am using 22.214.171.124 on a win 8.1 laptop. The log indicates something about a super dangerous loop.
