Re: ASI034mc Focal Length

To return to the OP's question, I'm afraid it isn't really a meaningful thing to ask. A camera does not magnify at all and has no focal length. You can calculate the size of the image on the sensor easily enough given the effective focal length of the optical train, but that doesn't really answer yo...

Re: Raspberry Pi "selfie"

I look forward to testing it. Development for the next release of oacapture is coming along well, although the more code I write the more there seems to be to do :)

Re: Raspberry Pi "selfie"

I think the gamma control is not working in recent versions of the SDK for the ASI120MC, Sam. It doesn't seem to do anything for me in either of the last two SDK releases, but works fine in the 0914 release.

Re: Raspberry Pi "selfie"

I was quite surprised myself, Sam :) I think there's a small problem with the installer script on the Raspberry Pi if you're running Pidora rather than Raspbian, but I've yet to confirm that for certain. Otherwise I was quite impressed that it managed 25fps. I believe it might work even better with ...

Re: Linux support and implementation of INDI protocol

I was just curious if there is any progress on linux drivers for these cameras, we have an ASI120MM Camera and are using this for a senior design project on ubuntu. If there are any turorials or guides that could help us get this up and running that would be fantastic. The SDK works fine on Linux a...

Re: Second alpha release of Linux capture application

I've already made some changes to my code that should support the ASI034MC. Once the new SDK is available I'll do what testing I can (not very much, I'm afraid) and make a new release so others can try it if they wish.

Re: Second alpha release of Linux capture application

I should have added:

If you want to build from source, read the files in the docs directory first. There are plenty of moving parts to catch your fingers in :)

Re: Adapter for 120MC to Canon EOS lens?

I think there are commercially-made versions because I know people use them to connect Canon EF lenses to (for example) an Atik 314L+. This sort of thing, for instance: http://www.teleskop-express.de/shop/product_info.php/language/en/info/p2836_Geoptik-T2-Adapter-fuer-CANON-EOS-Objektive---mit-Stati...
