My best Regards

We tested the Meade Telescope server. It worked more or less with a very low frame rate. It worked only with the 21 model (VGA resolution). The 31er and 41 did not work, there were too many paket losts, thus the frames were dropped. This is very embarrasing after a 10 minute exposure the frame was lost because a missing packet.

Hi Stefan,
Thank you for your reply. Another question, however:
What is the lowest acceptable speed for DBK 21 ?
i.e. how far below 480Mbit/s can I go without problems ?
Best regards

The lowest speed is 3.75 fps. Lower frame rates are not possible. This allocates app. 4% of the USB bandwidth.
