Re: Celestron Motofocus

I am using the FCUSB+JMI Motofocus for Celestron 9.25"+CCDSoft v5 @Focus and it all works perfectly. I'm also on Vista Ultimate 32-bit. In CCDSoft @Focus step size is large=400 and small=40 - this seems about the right setting for me.

HTH,

Tony.

Re: FCUSB and CCDSoft v5 not working

FYI only, now its been a few months, it seems like with the Motofocus (MFC9) MOTOFOCUS for Celestron C9.25 + FCUSB and the Celestron 9.25" with CCDSoft @Focus, step size large=400 and small=40 works about right for me.

Re: Canon EOS 5D and DSUSB

Hi: I seem to have got the >30sec exp working using DSUSB+DSLR - the images then automatically download via EOS Utility. Maybe I misunderstood that is it DSUSB+DSLR that are required to operate the EOS 5D in bulb mode for >30sec and EOS Utility or Nebulosity simply are the recipients of the images. ...

I have the DSUSB with Canon EOS 5D. The DSUSB Check shows the DSUSB connected and working fine and I can operate the camera shutter with the Canon set to Bulb from the DSUSB Check.

FCUSB and CCDSoft v5 not working

I can operate the Motofocus just fine from the FocusPal Software and the FCUSB unit. But I can't see to move the motor In and Out using the CCDSoft Focus Tools - M...
