  1. I am not really sure what to look for in it but all I see is this message under ascom in the applications and services log. ChooserForm - Failed to load driver: "ASCOM.MeadeGeneric.Telescope" System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Creating an instance of the COM component with CLSID {D9FD4B3E-C4F1-48AC-A16F-D02EEF30D86F} from the IClassFactory failed due to the following error: 80131604. at System.RuntimeTypeHandle.CreateInstance(RuntimeType type, Boolean publicOnly, Boolean noCheck, Boolean& canBeCached, RuntimeMethodHandle& ctor, Boolean& bNeedSecurityCheck) at System.RuntimeType.CreateInstanceSlow(Boolean publicOnly, Boolean fillCache) at System.RuntimeType.CreateInstanceImpl(Boolean publicOnly, Boolean skipVisibilityChecks, Boolean fillCache) at System.Activator.CreateInstance(Type type, Boolean nonPublic) at ASCOM.Utilities.ChooserForm.cmdProperties_Click(Object eventSender, EventArgs eventArgs) in C:\ASCOM Build\Export\ASCOM.Utilities\ASCOM.Utilities\ChooserForm.vb:line 232
  2. I did do the restart. I even made sure I removed any other Meade drivers I have installed I was just trying to connect to the scope.SO I opened POTH then selected the driver.Then I clicked the properties button so that I could specify the com port.It is when I click this button that I get the error.I also tested it with NINA and SGP
  3. Thank you for trying to assist I did try the re-install option but no luck I am running ascom platform 6.4 I did verify that it is version that I reinstalled I am working on a 64 windows 10 machine
  4. Good day.I tried the driver but get the following error when I try and select the properties tab. Any suggestion where to start trouble shooting
  5. Have a look at Tektite Skies http://www.mcdougalltech.com/page1/page1.html
  6. Would adding a yellow long pass filter not tighten up the spread in the blue channel?
  7. apt does have a list of objects under the object button in the gear tab. if you know the name and just want the coordinates for goto and plate solving this works great. it is not the most extensive list but works I would not consider it a replacement for Stellaruim though.

  8. in most cases I found it better than the standard of noise reduction but not so good as pixinsight or startools for so images. for normal photography it is definately my goto noise reduction tool Sent from my GT-I9500 using Tapatalk
  9. Asi 120 is great Nd their new coolex version od the 224 look amazing Sent from my GT-I9500 using Tapatalk
  10. I will second sgp. Astrophotography tools is cheaper and also will do auto focus on the user command. It can't do auto focus through out the sequence like sgp yet but I believe it is in works. Both also have plates solving which I can't imagine imaging withiut Sent from my GT-I9500 using Tapatalk
  11. I can support Apt as well. Not free but expensive either great value for money plus you get plates Olinger and many other useful features Sent from my GT-I9500 using Tapatalk
  12. I use a Sct larger format version and can't complain at all about it Sent from my GT-I9500 using Tapatalk
  13. The features really did enhance my photography. All the best Sent from my GT-I9500 using Tapatalk
