  1. I've managed to find the driver for it, however it does not support Windows 8 and that's what I'm running. Not going to troubleshoot further either.
  2. There is a reason why I dislike Windows... and moved over to Mac years ago. I cannot get any QHY drivers to work with the old QHY5. Unless someone is kind enough to point me to a download link?
  3. I have been using this camera for a while under Indi, you need to use older drivers for it, it does work (not a perfect driver but it works). Here's one of my posts: https://indilib.org/forum/ccds-dslrs/4975-fixed-qhy5-no-longer-working.html And I'm using the latest Kstars 3.3.8 for Osx, as you can see from the screenshots, it connects and can take pictures. I shall start up my Windows to demonstrate that this camera works as you are implying that it does not.
  4. As I have now upgraded to a QHY5L-II-M, I no longer have the needs for the old QHY5 I thought about turning it into an all-sky camera but gave up on the idea. £50 (+postage)
  5. As I haven't use it that much I think it's time for somebody else to enjoy it. Collection only (from Kingston Upon Thames) as it's heavy and quite tricky to pack correctly. £150
  6. As per the title, Starlight Xpress SX USB filter wheel with the 5 x2in filter wheel, in excellent condition (comes with the original box and T thread adapters). I'm selling it as I am now using a filter drawer instead. The only thing missing is the USB cable, something you probably have... £120 + postage (UK only) paypal.
  7. @MultumInParvo I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have. Throw them into my build thread please and I'll help you once I'm back in a few days time.
  8. I remember when I worked with Themos on the very first edition of this tool https://github.com/Trigger-broom-289/eq-polar-alignment in good old fashion bash... I like the graphical interface, but I'd like to have a command line version in python too.
  9. If you download helvO08.pil and helvO08.pbm (Google it) and udpate the code, it looks slightly better.
  10. Sadly, the weather has been quite bad since I came back from holidays, I'm checking my weather station every day and there is not enough time between clouds... to remote polar align. And I doubt they would be happy to do it at 1am... which is usually when it's mostly clear... lol
  11. Within Ekos there is now a great polar alignment tool, I can run it and will be able to see how far out the mount is. I have done my best to "visually" align it as much as I could....
