Thanks for letting me share this site. Right! Neebie. I now have the az gti and for the life of me I can't work out how to communicate with my windows 10 desktop and the mount.
Do I need extra cables to attach the two and if so which ones? Be grateful for any help at all....so frustrating. Shoild add I'm not very computer literate...thanks for understanding...del
I'm making a tentative foray into guided AP, and have got a ToupTek GCMOS01200KPB Colour guide cam from FLO (to use on an ST80 I picked up from the forums).
I can't get PHD2 to recognise the camera, in fact I can't even get the ToupTek software to see the camera. I wonder whether anyone else with experience of this camera, or Windows 10 might be able to help?
I managed to overcome the initial problem of Windows recognising it as a 'USB2.0 Camera' even thought I had 'installed' the DirectShow driver that came with the camera. It seems that running the driver installation program didn't actually install the driver, it just put the necessary files on my hard disk. I then had to do the windows thing of selecting 'update driver', 'have disk', etc. to point at the ToupCam.inf file that had been copied onto my laptop. After this, when I plug in the camera it correctly recognises it in Device Manager correctly as a GCMOS01200KPB camera (now under 'Imaging Devices' in device manager rather than 'Cameras'). The red LED on the camera flashes when it is connected.
This took me about a week to work out, so I was feeling quite pleased with myself - until I tried running any camera software. Running the ToupSky software showed 'no device' under cameras. I installed the ASCOM drivers, and when I run the ASCOM diagnostics it appears to see the driver but cannot connect to the camera.
I'm stumped. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
