Re: Can't connect ZWO OAG

yes, in hardware settings. The idea here is there might be a conflict if both cameras are using the same driver, be it what it is. I have seen a lot of these instances when the cameras are from the same manufacturer, ZWO, QHY, Atik,....So, 1600 -> ASCOM and 120 -> ZWO Native driver

Thanks Niklas. We have tried to send the model to the actual mount and it did work. Hence, there are a few options available to the user.

Re: Can't connect to LX200

Are you using the SkyX for example then PRISM? Some customers prefer to connect their mounts to theskyx since they have some X2 drivers and no ASCOM available. Is this your case or is the connection straight to PRISM ?

Re: Add my location via GPS?

PRISM will read the data and display it as well as update the FITS headers. This is commonly used for asteroid occultations.

I think I know what is going on. Do you have a third party software connected to the mount then PRISM?

Re: Cloud sensor, Obs. Conditions

Also does Prism react to the Cloud sensor when running in "manual" mode? I see there is a tick box in Atomatic Obsevations/Image Grab Options for auto mode. Regards Graham No. This is only taken into account during automatic observation. Is there a way to do this on the hardware side as a failsafe ?
