Quote:I use it with PHD and frankly i do not see any problems with it like the 1.3 second download time that you mention. It is usb 2.0 camera and with this small resolution i do not see reason why such thing should happen. Are your drivers up to date?
Quote:I am using MaximDL to guide with 0.5-1sec exposures. I use 64x64 pixel subframes which are very fast to download.Does your guiding software allow sub-frames? I can imagine it would an issue otherwise.
Quote:A question for you folks guiding with DSI II Pros: how long are your guide exposures, and what mounts are you guiding?
Quote:I just checked my DSI 2 pro downloads and I see no difference between MaximDL subframe and full-frame. They are both almost instantaneous download. So 1.3sec seems odd, unless it is running in USB1 mode.
Quote:Plotted data points for 1s exposures are ~3s apart. So there is an annoying latency which I always had and not sure where its coming from.
