    I would like to know if Maxim DL5 (which I have) will support the ZWO ASI-1600MC Cool camera. If so, how do I get it to connect, under the Camera Control menu? Help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Doug,
    Thanks very much. I visited the site and downloaded both the Ascom platform 6.3 and the camera driver. Is there anything I should know when trying to open this camera using DL5? Your help is appreciated!

    I'm afraid I'll have to refer you to ZWO for help with that. We've not even had the opportunity to try a ZWO camera here.

    I have a ZWO ASI174MM-COOL and it works ok. My advice is make sure you download the latest ASCOM drivers from ZWOptical, and that you are running ASCOM platform 6.3. The original ZWO software was unreliable and is much better today. I can't vouch for the 1600, but expect it will be ok.
