(Created page; added info and link for how I got the DSI to talk to MaximDL.)
(No difference)

  • We were having problems with getting the Meade DSI to talk to Maxim DL - it kept giving errors saying that it got an error trying to link to the camera. I eventually found the answer here. I had to invoke a slightly different version of that command, but what worked for me was just typing C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\RegAsm.exe "\Program Files\Diffraction Limited\MaxIm DL V5\dsiio.dll" all as one command, with a direct path to the RegAsm executable. After I did this, then MaximDL was able to talk to the DSI.
  • Note that MaximDL requires you to set particular gain values for the DSI in its setup, so it's not the easiest to adjust on the fly.
  • We still need to figure out if there's a good way to get a continuous readout from the DSI, like Autostar Envisage does.
