    when I am trying to focus with the expose tab on continuous? When set to SBIG w A/O i can hear the guider shutter opening and closing and the image displayed is that of the guide chip. I have to switch back to SBIG Universal to get the main chip to expose continuosly to focus...very strange. however the Autosave sequence will work right in either mode.

    What version of MaxIm DL are you running? What do you have configured in the Setup tab? Is Dual Chip on or off?

    I used my rig again last night, I'm a bit confused....sorry, maybe it was the main chip but I could hear the guider shutter opening and closing, or so I thought....I'll have to observe more again and see if this is true or not.

    Older firmware versions toggle both shutters. We upgraded that to make them independent some time ago.

    I'll move this to the SBIG section...
