Re: Does the ASI 294MC Pro need USB3

Max, The download speed affects amp glow which is why ZWO introduced USB3 ports on their cameras in the first place. However, you *should* be able to create corresponding darks to correct for that higher amp glow. Just make sure that you use the same port (USB2 or 3) for both and you should be fine....

Re: Stars Distorted if I use the 1.25 filter (8 position wheel)

Re: Cant se nebula in picture??

This is normal. The nebula is so faint that with a simple stretch on a single sub it still doesn't become visible. This is exactly why we take many subs and stack them. Don't worry about it and keep on imaging. This is perfectly normal behavior.

Re: EAF And Esprit 80

I am interested in this as well. Does "Yes" mean "Yes it is not supported" or "Yes it is supported". Please clarify. Thanks!

Re: ZWO 1600MM Pro - Problems with downloading images

Jeff,

I have seen reports of problems downloading images when using USB3 ports on older computers. Perhaps that's where your problems originate from?

Re: ASI120MM Not Streaming on Windows 10?

If this is the ASI120MM (USB2 version) then you may experience problems since it is not fully compatible with the USB2 specifications. You can try to flash the firmware and see if that solves the issue. If it is the ASI120MM-S (USB3 version) then it should work as is.
