Guys we have confirmation that qhy5L-II can be used with the modified driver and software recognizes it and works normally. The problem is that 5L-II have its usb connnection on the back which will make quite difficult to produce adapter for it. The other thing to take care of is to buy 25mm lens and attach it which should not be so difficult. If you want to test here are instructions how to modify the driver. Please keep in mind that for mindows 8/8.1/10 you need to first disable driver signing before installing the modified driver.
First you should download and install the driver from qhy site:
By default it installs in following folder - C:\Program Files (x86)\QHYCCD\POLEMASTERDriver\driver
Here you will see file POLEMASTER.inf which you need to modify. Open it with notepad or any other text editor. You will see following section in it:
PidVidA = VID_1618&PID_0940
PidVidB = VID_1618&PID_0941
So now you should just change the 0940 and 0941 digits in the polamster.inf file with 0920 and 0921 respectively. Save the file after that. The modified driver is ready. Now you should install it. Open again device manager -> right click on the camera -> properties but this time go to the driver tab. Click on update driver -> browse my computer for software. Now click on the browse button and go to the C:\Program Files (x86)\QHYCCD\POLEMASTERDriver\driver folder. Click next. If everything is ok driver will be installed and you will have polemaster device in device manager -> astro equipment. Now you should install the polemaster software and start it. If it recognizes the camera and you get image it is successful. Good luck.
when updating the driver as instructed above, I receive a following message:
"the hash for the file is not present in the specified catalog file. The file is likely corrupt or the victim of tampering"
do you have any idea how to fix it? thanks
