Since the Orion SSAG camera is really a QHY5 in different clothing, I was wondering if anyone has tried using this for solar imaging? If so, do you just reassign the driver in control panel when you want to switch between imaging and ascom autoguiding?

thanks in advance,
Andy

Check out this site, this is supposed to work with the SSAG for using it as a videocam.

Wow, that looks really neat. I love the live overlay option. Thanks!

Warren's recommendation will work very well. I have been using it for a couple of years.

Don't know if this link gets you to my Flikr page 1 but many of my shots are done with the SSAG and VidoSky Warren recommended.
