Hi I just got a new Starshoot G10 Color Camera.  I take it that there is no direct driver uppdate available for The Sky X, yet. I tried to connect it as ASCOM Camera as suggested by Orion but it doesn't work., it comes up with ERROR: command failed. Error = 206

What version of Windows (7/8/10) are you using?

Did you install the latest Orion StarShoot Direct Driver from their web site? This may(?) be required by the G10 ASCOM "driver", of which you should also install the latest. Currently (at the time of my writing) both are from 2018-12-24. And of course, you'll need the latest ASCOM Platform.

Are you able to use the camera with Orion's StarShoot Image Capture Program?

I had the G10 briefly ( I sent it back). I had problems with the cooling (would fluctuate by about 8c) and I wasn't able to bin in the SkyX. I thought it might be a bad Ascom driver and about a week after I sent it back they had an updated Ascom driver that addresses the binning issue. I was able to connect the camera, but if I tried binning it I would get an error message. So make sure you have the latest driver.

Okay. And the answer to my last question?
