Re: Strange issue using GPUSB ASCOM Driver in FireCapture

I do not have a 64-bit ASCOM driver at this time, or the skills to produce one myself. I would gladly support anyone that would like to create a new driver.

Re: For Canon R6?

You would just need to add the DSCBL-01 adapter cable since you already have the DSUSB shutter controller.

Re: Problem getting my Nikon D7500 recognized

DSUSBCheck provides very low level control of the DSUSB, i.e. it allows you to control the LED color and the two electrical signals all separately. For many cameras, both the "Assert" and the "Open" signals must be used to get the shutter to open. Some cameras only take one or the other signal to ge...
