ASI120MM + Maxim DL not guiding w/ built-in relays

Post by esordini » Mon Mar 04, 2019 6:00 pm

Helly everybody,
I am a happy owner of an ASI 120MM camera (old USB2 model) which I use both for imaging and autoguiding.

Last weekend I tried to use my ASI 120 MM for autoguiding with Maxim DL, but it didn't work, in that the mount won't move by a single pixel. Please note that the camera works perfectly fine if controlled via PHD Guiding v 2.6.x, so there's no hardware issues.

Some info on my environment:

- Windows 7 64-bit, EN
- Maxim DL 6.14
- ASCOM Platform 6.1
- Latest ASCOM driver available from ZWO's website (1.0.3.22). The ASCOM camera chooser has two ASI camera options listed, (1) and (2), but it makes no difference whatsoever
- Autoguider output option in Maxim DL set to "Guider Relays"

Anybody have any idea on how to solve this issue? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Emmanuele

built-in relays mean you need to connect through the ST4 port
it must be software setting issue if PHD2 is fine

Hi Sam,
thank you for your reply. Any idea what might be the software problem here?

Thanks

Take a look of this manual, there is a chapter about Maxim DL.
