new scope and camera troubles ???

Post by astroeddie »

Hi guys,
Back in the loop with my new Celestron CPC 925 sct, I 've bought with it a new neximage 10 camera to run on my windows 10 laptop, but, no sign of it using either Icap, Sharpcap or Amcap. Sharpcap gives ne a black screen even when I point the camera at a street light in the distance ??

Any clues would be gladly accepted here, haha

Hi Eddie, Welcome Back! Thought we had lost you :lol:

Nice camera if you can get it working :) . It does seem t have some probems with W10. I read that you need to install the drivers before you plug in the camera for the first time. If you have already installed the camera drivers after plugging in the camera you probably need to use device manager to remove those drivers. Then reinstall software/drivers , then plug in the camera.

HTH and regards,
Brian
