THE FLI CAMERA IS NOW INSTALLED AND WORKING WHEN CONTROLLED BY MAXIM-DL USING THE CAMERA COMPUTER.

 

I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO GET THE NECESSARY SERVICES TO RUN SO THAT THE CAMERA CAN BE CONTROLLED BY ACE USING THE OBSERVATIONS DIALOGS.

 

WE ARE STILL WORKING ON A SOLUTION TO THIS.  SO IN THE MEANTIME YOU CAN USE THE TELESCOPE PROVIDING YOU DO NOT USE THE OBSERVATIONS WINDOW IN ACE.  INSTEAD CONTROL THE CAMERA FROM THE CAMERA COMPUTER.  OF COURSE, THERE WILL NOT BE ANY TELESCOPE / INSTRUMENT DATA IN THE FITS HEADER.
