Re: autofocus failure: brightest pixel too close to edge of the image

I'd like you tp perform a test for me. When you autofocus next time, double the size of the window in the autofocus function. in the presence of hot pixels in the frame and when the star is defocused, it happens that other "pixels" become brighter. But let's start by increasing the window size

Re: Filter Names

Try updating the driver please, I am sure that’s what the issue is as this is outside of PRISM per se.

Re: Can't connect ZWO OAG

very good point John, USB hubs are the enemy of astronomy, I cannot emphasize this enough. They better be powered and of really high quality. How about plugging in directly to the PC? I use 15foot USB cables to avoid hubs myself.
