I am a happy owner of an ASI 120MM camera (older USB2 type) which I use for planetary imaging on a regular basis. Recently I had the idea to use it for autoguiding as an alternative to my SX Lodestar; my imaging program of choice is Maxim DL 5.
I tried the latest version of your ASCOM driver. Maxim DL is able to detect the camera, but trouble is, downloading the frame is extremely slow (sth like 4 or 5 seconds, even in binning 2 mode), which makes it virtually unusable for autoguiding (should be negligible, just one fraction of a second).
I did all my tests on a laptop running 32-bit Windows Vista with the latest available version of the ASCOM platform (6.1SP1).
So here's my question: anybody out there have any ideas/experiences/clues to share? Maybe is there something I am doing wrong?
Thanks in advance for your reply.
