Hi. I'm needing some help with my aio camera. I can connect and see an image on the Astrocap software so I know my aio camera works. But when I try to connect to PHD2 it fails to open the AIO, I've looked in the drop down menu and tried both the autotracker and the planetary image and auto tracker but neither can open the camera. Any help would be welcome.

Did you download and install the ASCOM drivers for the camera? In PHD you would select the ascom camera.

In PHD, when you select the ascom camera, are you able to see the Orion AIO camera?  

Also you have the ASCOM platform  installed on the computer.  I think it is 6.5.  If so do a driver checker to make sure everything is working.
