    Hello,

    We are using Maxim DL with a recently purchased ZWO AS1701 color camera. The camera works fine except that we only get monochrome images. What do we need to do to photograph in color ? Could not find appropriate setting.

    Thanks for your assistance.

    Am not sure what model of camera you are talking about... probably transposed some letters/numbers.
    There are two common ways of dealing with colour cameras.
    On the Camera Control window, Expose Tab, look at the Readout Mode to see if it has any options. These options come from the ZWO ASI ASCOM camera driver.
    If there is no suitable option, then you just need to know the Bayer mask colour order (eg RGGB, BGGR or whatever that camera uses), and use the functions under the Color menu to convert it appropriately.

    Also, I suggest you register for MaxIm technical support.
