    Hi all,
    i have found a possible bug in maxim dl 6.18:
    1)- set main camera to "simulator"
    2)- set second camera (guider) to no camera
    3)- try to get cameras names as follows:
    name1=max.cameraname
    name2=max.guidername

    Under name2 , you will get "simulator" if you put max.cameraname to "simulator"
    indeed, you will never get "no camera"
    looks like maxim dl 6.18 is assigning the SAME camera name to BOTH cameras...
    anyone can double check this?

    clear skies,
    Robert

    If you have only one camera, it is available both as the main camera and as the autoguider - but of course it can only do one thing at a time.
