    Last night I tried out my trial copy of Maxim DL. I have a Mach 1 mount, atik 383L OSC camera, and a QHY5L-11 off axis guider. I am pleased to say I was able to get everything connected, guiding working, and was able to take a series of images with dithering. I consider that a great success for the first night!

    I did experience some issues. I had to restart my computer several times and unplug and replug my camera several times. It seemed like if I did something wrong, I had to refresh everything. Why does this happen? Is it ASCOM or the Atik drivers that get corrupted?

    Another thing to consider is the USB hub, or less likely, the cables. The load of a camera through USB can "expose" weaknesses. Suspect the cheapo hubs you get from Staples etc.
