  2. I'm afraid I have the same problem. I'm dual booting 10.11.6 and windows 7 on a USB2 mac (2009 macbook pro). My new ASI120mm works fine in firecapture on windows. However oacapture fails to provide more than 1 f/s of broken-up looking images on preview. The camera controls also seem sort of weirdly unresponsive - I assume checkboxes for things like gain are setting it to automatic but after changing any of the settings, the apply button is grayed out so I'm not sure if its making any difference. setting USB traffic to lower settings helped maintain framerates in firecap but seems to have no effect in oacapture. setting a lower resolution didnt help either. Weirdly, I can use the camera to autoguide with PhD on mac with no problems (on highest frame rate setting which is 0.01). Is it possible there are variations between camera examples that determine how well oacapture can work with them? I dont mind working in windows to do image capture, but I'd like to do it all on a mac if possible.. and oacapture looks like a great program if I could get it working for me. I think I may sell this camera and get one of the usb3 versions which apparently work much better on mac..
