    Hi all,

    I am trying to connect these 2 cameras in my MaximDL DSLR software.
    But I am facing a problem.
    I am not able to see SX Universal "driver" in the Camera Model menu in Toggle Camera Control, the same for Orion SS G3.

    Is my version compatible with this kind of configuration ?

    Thanks for your reply.

    Sebastien

    Hi Sebastien.

    Unfortunately I think you would need to upgrade to Maxim DL PRO for those cameras.

    In the current user manual > Introduction > Product Levels, they state that for Maxim DL Basic and Maxim DL DSLR the Orion SS G3 is specifically not supported and neither are ASCOM cameras or anything above basic webcams or video cameras.

    I have copied the relevant section and pasted it below.

    Cameras Supported by MaxIm DL Basic

    MaxIm DL Basic supports webcams and introductory-level cameras:

    • Meade LPI
    • Meade 208XT, 216XT

    Yes, upgrades are possible.

    There is an upgrade request form here:

    http://diffractionlimited.com/product/maxim-dl/

    Click on the upgrades tab, enter your serial number for Maxim DSLR and your email address and you will be sent the price for an upgrade.

    William.
