    Can MaxIm DL be used to image the Meade Starlock cameras that come with a Meade LX600 telescope? It would be useful to help focus them.

    If so, what steps are needed to make the connection?

    Thank you.

    As far as I'm aware, the Starlock is a completely stand-alone device. I don't believe Meade provided a way to connect to it.

    You can connect to them with a Serial cable, but I don't think they are not meant to be controlled outside of the LX850/LX600 application of it. You can use the StarLock utility to focus it, and update the firmware. The 'APIs' are undocumented.
