Re: Which Camera?
I’ll echo the cable issue, which is fixable , imo.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
As for the ZWO driver issue.. if I read the thread correctly, ZWO was working on a fix for the driver problem.
As mentioned previously I’ve been using a QHY268M for a couple months now.
(I’m also using a ZWO ASI174MC on the same computer, and a QHY Polemaster.)
Initially it was nothing but corrupted downloads with the QHY268M. Then I realized I was totally exceeding the 3 meter USB3 limit.
The cable that ships with the QHY268M is so-so ok.. it worked IF it was only used to connect direct to the computer. Hub was a no-go. I replaced it. I’m connecting to a hub (UPBv2), then to the Mach2 USB port then to the computer mounted on the pier so I can use a 1 foot cable to the mount.
Total length on USB is about 6 feet.
Finding good cables is a bit difficult. Ppl on ap-ug / ap-gto have mentioned L-Com cables are very good and work with these cameras; I’m using random USB3 cables from Amazon and a local computer store , and they are hit-or-miss tho I have a combo that seems to work. That said, I might get some “right angle” cables from L-Com.
As a side note , I’m using the Ascom driver with SGP. Btw I’m powering the camera (and other 12v accessories) with a Yeti 1500x “solar generator” battery power supply which has a regulated 30A 12v output.
I’ve also had no problems with the QHY filter wheel. My only complaint is the RJ45 power/command port and cable is a bit difficult to remove but I think I’ve got the hang of it.
