Hi Just tried out my new (to me) Canon 6D Mk1 at Galloway Star Party and discovered that my Windows 7, 64bit laptop doesn't see the camera when I try to connect it by USB, so I can't control it with BackyardEOS. I've checked the device manager and it just doesn't come up when connected and switched on plus I've tried different USB ports. However, I don't have the same problem when I do the same with my Canon EOS 450D using the same cable with the same laptop. Am I missing something important here? Pretty frustrating given it's the first time I've been out under a sky that good in a long time Thanks in advance, Tom
This is my very first time working with a telescope and i'm having trouble connecting my mount to my pc (It seems very easy for you guys, shame on me). I've followed a lot of threads which helped me a lot on this forum but it still won't work. This is what I've done: -I've build a cable RJ12/USB with a USB/TTL chip connecting the Rx to the Tx, the Tx to the Rx and the GND to the GND. (with the adpated driver which works fine) -I've installed the Driver "AzGoto by Armazem Do Telescopio" -I've installed the ASCOM plateform -I've installed StellariumScope, Stellarium and Skychart -In both softwares I chose the Driver AZ GOTO, fill in my latitude and longitude and the appropriate port COM But when I try to connect my telescope, I have to wait over 5 minutes until an error pops up with 'BasicApi.MountControlException" Do you guys have any idea what's going on ? Again, these are my first steps into Astronomy. Thanks you very much.
