I'll get the setups out of the way first
Both Scopes are running and asi294mc pro
Skywatcher 80ed pro (.85 reducer) on the eq6r pro, asi120mm mini with the zwo oag and version 1 ZWO EAF. All connected via a usb 3 hub to a lenovo mini i5 2.0 ghz 8 gb ram 446gb ssd
Edgehd925 (.7x reducer) Ioptron cem70 (usb 2.0 ver with iPolar) asi 178mm for guiding celestron OAG newer EAF (5v usb) connected to an hp mini i3 3.2ghz 16gb ram 256gb ssd
All comps are up to date and have latest release of ASi drivers for ascom and eqmod. Sharp cap pro, phd2 and astap, platesolve etc. Also both have APT that I normally use for imaging. All machines are RDP from either my laptop/iphone or desktop
Then there's N.I.N.A
I have no problems with any of the software that I have been using prior to it. Sure sharp cap won't play nice with the ipolar cam at times, as it will take a while at times for it to initialize the camera, and when using the eq6r and cem70 I forgot to disable slew limits causing all the auto flips to fail.
But N.I.N.A? When I had it running all the hardware would disconnect on both machines randomly while running sharp cap, yes I would disconnect the HW on NINA so that Sharpcap could do its thing for PA, but nope, just disconnect and crashes. I restarted both PC's, unplugged the HW piece by piece (I thought perhaps there was a power issue)but nope, nothing helped.
So I shut it down and booted up APT and didn't look back.
What am I doing wrong? it's partly cloudy tonight, so I'll fresh install NINA and won't add HW until after I use Sharpcap to check alignment.
APT is stable, but tired in the interface a bit. I want to try NINA, but not at the loss of an hour and a half of trouble shooting. Makes me want to go back to the asiar pro.
