Re: ASCOM Driver "freezing"?

There's not enough information to say for sure, but the most likely reason is the serial port hung. Are you using a USB/serial converter on a USB hub with a USB connection to your camera? If so, try moving the mount's USB cable to its own USB port on your computer.

Subject: Re: [ap-gto] ASCOM Driver "freezing"?

I'm seeing the AP ASCOM driver "not responding" again, multiple times a night now. Seems the cable
replacement was not a permanent fix. Can someone please help? Can't really automate image capture with this
continuing to freeze up.

I just upgraded to the most recent version of the driver and ran it for a few hours without freeze. Are there any
bugfixes in the latest version that would address this, or is this just happenstance (again)? Any help would be
appreciated.

Thanks.
