Meade LPI driver
Posted 18 February 2009 - 11:41 PM
New on this page. My Meade LPI arived this afternoon and I am ready to shoot it! (I like model rockets also)
All I can find are the drivers for the DSI, the supplied disk doesn't seem to have the correct LPI driver. Vista installs a webcam driver and nothing works.
Any help, many thanks

Went through ths myself. The Meade Autostar Suite can't drive the LPI thorough Vista, as Meade haven't provided Vista drivers and your PC will automatically install Trust webcam drivers.
There are four ways around this:
1. You can apparently mess around with registry entries to make the Meade software identify the LPI properly (search for Vista LPI in the forums).
2. Use different software like Wx Astro Capture which will work with an LPI using Trust drivers.
3. Change your OS back to Windows XP or earlier (a bit radical).
4. Sell your LPI and buy a differenrt webcam that has Vista support (again a bit radical, but maybe easiest in the long run).
I went for number 2.

Below is my Bahtinov mask for my SN6 and my older Hartmann mask. For starters you may just want to make a simple Hartmann.
