I'm looking for a good program to use to capture images from my Sony A7Rii DSLR.  I've tried a special ASCOM driver that someone wrote online, but it doesn't want to work through APT.  I also tried connecting to digicam control, but it didn't work either.  I'm running Windows 10 as a Virtual Machine on a 2012 Macbook Pro.  I might just end up using ASTRODSLR, but it doesn't have live view. 

 

If it helps, my gear is:

Stellarvue SV80

ZWO ASI120MM-Mini guidescope

Stellarvue 50mm guidescope

Sony A7Rii

Macbook Pro with Windows 10 as a VM in Parallels.

Skywatcher HEQ5-Pro

PHD2

Stellarium

The native Sony software is good.
