Quote:Joe:the solenoids I'll be getting are pull type. it's a c type frame with 4 small threaded mounting holes on the bottom to secure with small screws through the shutter from the underside. (mine only uses 3 of the mounting holes) end to end its 25mm and just over 12mm wide and 12mm tall. the shaft/plunger is 3/16 of an inch thick with a 1.5mm hole to link to the shutter cam. remember because mine are essentially special order I've got two weeks expected till they are completed. the stuff they have listed online "I'm assuming" maybe they have in stock and don't need to build it? so if you look at their catalog and see one that fits the bill better than what I am getting(very likely), let me know "soon" and I'll call and add it to my order.

Quote:Got a little distracted by other things, but finally had time to try the Quantix in a different PC. No conflicts in this one - card and software all installed fine with no errors. On the other hand, RS Image comes up but doesn't see the camera. The fan in the camera does run but there's no other sign of life.

No, I never got a response from the camera, only the PCI card. David's gonna let me exchange it (I didn't start the shutter mod yet; wanted to make sure everything worked first). I suspect a power supply or PCI card problem but without working parts to substitute I can't tell. I'll get it packed up this weekend. I'm still looking forward very much to having a 6303E camera.
Quote:Please see SBarden's posts on page 10 and 11 of the thread. He has a detaied discription for ID of the camera. Did you try that?

Quote:Very nice! Are you supporting the camera with something more than the focuser? I plan on making a plate to extend out from the dovetail to support the camera to make things more stable. When it's done I'll post pix. --Keith
