Tried again. Attached the newer StarShoot camera. Windows did the boop-beep indicating a recognised USB device. Then I launched Orion AmCap. Tried Options, Preview. Wha? I saw live video! Connected to the Meade ETX and aimed out the window.

So the camera is working and the driver seems to be OK. But still no response from MaxIm DL or PHD. Captured a 15 second AVI.


One needs to be careful about saving, closing, gracefully so to not corrupt the file. Played back a movie in VLC. Huh. It works, in a basic way.
