Re: ASI20MM on Mac and/or virtual machine: SOLVED

As an update to this topic, I have another suggestion that will probably solve ALL REMAINING PROBLEMS OF USING THIS CAMERA WITH A MAC. After some extensive debugging and testing, I determined and tested on three other Macs that a major problem can be posed by the BLUETOOTH. Disabling Bluetooth on Ma...

Re: ASI20MM on Mac and/or virtual machine: SOLVED

I carefully debugged what happens, and for what's worth my opinion I think I have a clear idea of what's the problem. Also I'm NOT using the compatible, I'm using the NORMAL firmware of the ASI120MM, so I achieve quite good framerate (max resolution 16/12bit capture constant 10fps, if I do 8bit it g...

Re: ASI20MM on Mac and/or virtual machine: SOLVED

Hi Sam It looks long/complicated by the description but is not, it just takes a few seconds to load Oacapture. I downloaded and compiled your sdk, would be enough for you to do a 'camera loader' and all would work even more quickly (doing what oacapture does that is loading the first firmware on boa...

Re: ASI20MM on Mac

Hi all, I finally solved the problem, and I can say the ASI120MM *IS* compatible with Mac / OSX with or without Virtual Machines.

Re: ASI20MM on Mac

Hi I tried what you suggested by email (VMWARE 8 + WIndows 7 + intel drivers) and it doesn't work. Like in Parallels (other virtual machine) and Windows XP, your ASI software (or any other) can see the camera, but cannot take any frame from it. As I said PHD2 on OSX is perfectly able to take frames ...

ASI20MM on Mac and/or virtual machine: SOLVED

Hi all, I bought a 120mm (usb2) for solar imaging, after reading that oacapture supports it. Sadly is not the case...as I discovered later, many here have problems with oacapture connecting but not showing any preview or getting any image from the camera, I already tried download the firmware update...
