If Maxim waits for the fw to stop turning before doing the exposure I can't blame the MaximDL disconnects on the fw. I am waiting on the exposure to finish via the Cam.ImageReady = False. So we're basically back to to fixing the random disconnects. I've already uploaded the SBIG STT driver logs along with your Maxim logs. Guess I'll have to wait for Adam or someone to take a look and see if we can determine what's causing the disconnects. I'm finished with the Maxim camera interface. We just need to stop the disconnects.
