Hello. smile.gif

 

First of all, I wish you and happy new year!

 

Small question for starting 2019...

 

I am using a old camera Orion Starshoot Deep Space Monochrome Imager II (SSDSMI-2) with a small old laptop (Medion) working under windows XP.

 

With the driver Maxim DL (1.09).

 

So a touch of "vintage" configuration...

 

I do some little experiments for making EEA with this material and use the function "auto-save" in order to use the visualisation window provided by the driver in a "live view" mode.

 

- It works quite good.

 

But:

 

- There is some latency/delay between two successive acquisitions:

Each acquired image is systematically saved on my hard disk in a folder that I had to previously defined.

I guess that said latency/delay is at least partially due to this automatic saving steps.

 

I would like to know if there is a possibility to optionally avoid such saving steps and therefore just keep the image visualization on the window provided by the driver. Without this systematic saving step on the hard disk, I suppose that I will strongly limit this delay/latancy issue.

 

what would be a solution:

- writing a script? how? (I am like a chicken with a knife, in computer domain... believe me... laugh.gif )

- perhaps some hidden option to be found in the menu of the driver?

- ... (?)

 

In advance thank you for your suggestions...

 

Have a good day!
