So I am considering replacing either of those with a ZWO camera for guiding, either an ASI120MM, or perhaps even the ASI290MM mini, but I absolutely do not want to have any continued problems with dropouts and issues. I know the current drivers show support for using simultaneous ZWO cameras under the ASCOM driver - is this going to be a stable configuration for me? I typically like to run the ASI1600 at USB 3.0 speeds (to minimize amp glow; I have the previous generation camera) but would like to not lose the ability to also run it at USB 2.0, so I would need to be sure these 2 cameras would work in a USB3.0 (ASI1600) / USB2.0 (ASI120MM or ASI290MM mini) configuration, as well as running both cameras in USB 2.0 at the same time.
Thanks bunches for any information,
Celestron AVX & SE4 mounts
ASI1600MM-Cool, Atik414ex, 500D (mod) & ASI120MM cameras
XAGYL filterwheel, ZWO LRGB filters, Baader photometric V filter
it is the newest guide camera and won't have any problem
i have a similar setup 1600mm-c and 1600mm for guiding. I plug them into different usb portsjames_screech wrote:I use a ASI1600MM-C & ASI120MM together without a problem. The 120MM is pluged into the 1600's hub and both connected to a USB2 port on the laptop. The only minor issue is that both cameras need the USB bandwidth turned down to 40%.
since they updated the driver to 3.0 i haven't had any major issues. Occasionally it will get confused about which camera is ASI 1 and ASI 2, maybe once every week or so, easy to fix.
