Do you all know how easy it is to run Imaging Source cameras from within a Linux environment? Specifically I'm thinking about running two DMK41AU02 's at once. They're monochrome CCD's, 1280/960 pixels. Is there software available to control the cameras through Linux?
Had a lovely imaging session on Suday morning in "runoffshed's" back garden with the PST and DMK41, this is my fourth outing with this equipment and the first time with a barlow added. The atmosphere was very steady with the only interuptions coming from Sybil the very curious cat and by John generously providing tea and bacon butty's, this sure beats messing around in the cold and dark The second image is an inverted close-up which to my eye looks like a distant church with a spire next to a tree on top of a hill, needless to say I'm very pleased with the results I'm getting from the little PST.

Hi After years of failing to get a decent solar image with a DSLR on my PST I finally bit the bullet and bought a secondhand DMK41. WOW what a difference, I was beginning to think I had a dodgy PST but now I'm as pleased as punch. I've learnt a lot from looking at the superb images in this section and getting tips on which stacking software is best to use, I settled on AutoStakkert!2 for stacking and Registax 6 for sharpening plus a bit of Photoshop to finish it off. This image was shot on 11-11-2012 with the PST mounted on my Astrotrac. Mel
Before anyone says it, I have got and fitted the short shoulder-less nose piece and removed the 5mm extension ring it comes with. With that out of the way, the DMK41 arrived today. I ordered the short nosepiece with it, and putting them on the PST the camera body is flush with the end of the eyepiece holder on the PST. It isn't getting any closer. In a quick and frustrating play, I just can't find focus. The sun spent most of the time hiding behind clouds so I didn't get much time, but I went near enough end to end on the focus scale. Before I gave up the sun was behind a TV aerial and trees, and using that as reference I know I can focus closer by rotating the knob clockwise. Infinity should obviously be the other direction, so I wound it as far as I dare anti-clockwise. It hits some resistance and by this point the knob sticks out quite far. So I'm hesitant to go further. Is this normal? Should I keep turning or will something fall apart before I hit an end stop? Any other tips? I did manually adjust the exposure so the sun wasn't blown out, but I haven't really had time to play with the settings yet. Given the sun has gone down now, I'll obviously can't try again until tomorrow (weather allowing).
