    Hi,
    Is there an ASCOM driver for the SC-2 camera?
    If there is, can 2 applications access the STF-8300 (by MDL or SGP) and the OAG (by PHD2)

    Yes. All new models have ASCOM support.

    Sounds good. It looks like the SC-2 is completely independent from the main camera (STF-8300) and software would just see an ASCOM camera for OAG, eh?

    Thanks!

    Yes the SC-2 is completely independent of the main camera. That was very much a design decision from the start - no dependency on the main camera.

    It can be accessed via our DL Imaging drivers or via ASCOM.
