Can you confirm if the software will work with the following;

  • Celestron CGX Mount
  • SBIG Aluma Series 8300 w Self Guiding Filter Wheel

 

Thanks

jhandel:
  • Celestron CGX Mount
  • Yes.

    jhandel:
  • SBIG Aluma Series 8300 w Self Guiding Filter Wheel
  • No.  This camera requires the new driver model, and the driver SDK has not been released.  This means TheSkyX does not support this model camera at this time.

    One option is to use TheSkyX Camera Add On to talk to MaxIm DL Pro, and use the DL Imaging drivers.

    It works, although a bit more complex than you might want.

    Meanwhile, Diffraction Limited is working on a better solution that should be ready for testing in a few short weeks, and you should contact Diffraction Limited on their support forum for SBIG and Aluma cameras: http://forum.diffractionlimited.com/

    Thank you so much for taking the time to clarify this!

    I'm very interested in this as I would like to run an Aluma camera with TheSkyX. Have there been any recent developments?

    Not that SB is aware of.

    Once they release the drivers etcetera, is it trivial and quick to add control of these cameras to The Sky X or will it take some time?

    There's some behind the scenes work going on at Diffraction Limited presently. We hope to have our Software Development Kit available very soon for key partners like Software Bisque.

    Meanwhile, we're taking care of individual Aluma customers with an upgrade to MaxIm DL Pro to use with TSX CAO.

    Usually the latter.  Thanks for hanging in there.
