Will serial port triggers via the RTS data line option be available in Maxim DL?
What are you trying to do?
The Canon camera drivers could trigger RTS for long-exposure astrophotogarphy for those older Canon's that needed something like a Shoestring astronomy shutter release cable.
Unfortunately I am not Canon or Nikon or Sony user. I am Pentax user.
Maybe the Diffraction Limited people will have an idea for you when they get back to work tomorrow.
We have no plans to do that.
Thanks for the reply. I will look for another software that can do it then.
You could also see if someone has written an ASCOM driver for Pentax cameras. There was one mention of it for a KX3, but I could not find the software. If there was an ASCOM driver, you could get it to work with MaxIm or other software.
Yes, finally i got the Ascom driver for Pentax DSLR and it works with serial com port. But i got an issue in MaximDL which after I setup the Autosave sequence, the process will stop at Downloading images which in theory it can't download images into my notebook but can only save into my camera memory card. How to bypass this process? I can't find any option to disable it. Thanks.
Where did you get the ASCOM driver?
from a Pentax user and also the developer of this driver.
I'm just another customer trying to help you out.
Please share the details of where you got it - website, developer name and contact info.
Also, please share which Pentax camera you have.
You will have all the details here.
This is the forum that I got the Ascom drivers from. https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums...3-support-ascom-drivers-astrophotography.html
This is the direct link to download the drivers. https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums...ascom-drivers-astrophotography-pentaxdslr.zip

I own a Pentax K5IIs modified.
Thanks for helping up.
