Re: New Forum's Color Scheme

I agree that the darker previous scheme was easier on the eyes and the new fonts seem to be grey and overwhelmed by the brightness of the background. Maybe it's a matter of getting used to. I also see that there will be a learning curve to fully understand this new site. Lets get some more feedback....

ASI174mm Issue

Re: HELP!! 174MM suddenly low frame rate!

***UPDATE** I don't know what I did but after setting new capture folders on my internal hybrid drive and then resetting the folders back into the external SSD things seems to be back to normal. I dunno what the deal was but those technical gremlins can show up anytime. I have the 174mm and that ha...

Re: ASI120MC

Various magnifications are achieved using Barlow lenses of different power.
The cameras will fit inside the Barlow.
