300D, RemoteCapture and bulb

Posted By Tom Licha

Thank you for your quick response.

Seems very strange to me: the Canon IR-Remote Control is just sending IR signals and CAN control the camera in bulb. But the USB-connection cannot. Must definitely be a bug or lousy implementation.

Thanx for the soft- and hardware tips. Unfortunately the serial port is used for LX-200 connection and the parallel for the guide cam sad Maybe I have to look for an additional serial card, maybe USB to serial. Its a laptop...

Still have some hope, cause I got the latest version of RemoteCapture now wink

Take care

Andromeda Galaxy - Sky 90 & Digital Rebel

Posted By Tom Licha


I have the Baby-Tak FS60C and found it to be frustrating with the digital rebel. 50% of the image close to the corners is full of aberrations sad

The dealer told me, thats normal, because the focal plain is not 'plain' enough for the large chip of the rebel.

What is your experience with the 90? Is it sharp to the corners?

Thank you

Time for all of us to do our part in supporting AstroMart

Hi there,

this is a very uncommon concept for people where I am from. But I like the idea.

Can you tell in one sentence: what is the difference of a supporter and a sponsor...?
