I have the APT software on my laptop. I started using it many years ago when I started out with a Canon 450D DSLR for AP.
Even now, when I start up the APT software and connect my camera to the laptop, the program connects very easily to the Canon DSLR. I just have to choose CANON camera and press CONNECT and I'm connected.
In the tab where you choose what kind of camera you have, APT does offer a similar choice for the QHY camera. Instead, I have to choose ASCOM. After choosing ASCOM, the APT software does not seem capable to figuring out that I have a QHY connected to my laptop (as it would so easily detect the connection for my Canon DSLR).
My laptop has the ASCOM program loaded into the computer -- I have been using it to run my Atlas EQ-G.
How do I get APT to connect to my QHY163m ???
PS In the meantime, I am using SharpCap. But I would like to try APT to run the QHY163m.
