    Hi Experts,

    Just curious if it is possible to use a separated (independent) HDMI/USB cable to connect/control the CCD at the self-guiding filter wheel directly to the computer?

    I have some trouble of using SPG/Ph.D2 and STT-8300 and thinking it would be easier to control the main and guiding CCD independently... Thanks.

    Sorry, remote guide heads only have a small fraction of the electronics necessary. It depends on the main camera for readout.
