Hitec Focuser ASCOM driver compatability with NINA

Recommended Posts

I have encountered the same problem as other users (I think, based on posts in the NINA forum) of the Hitec ASCOM focuser driver causing an error when connecting to NINA, causing the software to close. 

Interestingly, the driver does appear to work with SGP.

Does anybody know if Hitec Astro are on the case with this one (I believe there is no Hitec 64 bit driver available either for imaging sequence programs) or are we stuck with it? Its a pity if that is the case as I think the Hitec unit is a fine piece of kit and compatibility  with an Open Source integrated imaging software package would be valuable asset.

Hitec have just released a new driver to sort out the 64 bit compatibility problem so download the latest version from their website which should sort out your problem.

Thanks for this, I’ll first need to download the 64 bit version of NINA, then I’ll give it a try.

I have tried the current Focusmaster V1  ASCOM driver with both 32 and 64 bit N.I.N.A., with no success. Last error message is attached. Looks like it will have to be SGP going forward.

Have you tried connecting with string instead of the USB cable?

Stack overflow due to 32 bit / 64 bit DLL compatibility issue......
