View Full Version : autoguiding with DFK 21AU04.AS and PHD

July 14, 2010, 15:00:07
I have a DFK 21AU04.AS and would like to use it for autoguiding my Meade LX90. I have tried using the freeware autoguiding software - PHD but with little success. PHD identies a number of cameras but only the IS DCAM firewire. Any suggestions?

Many thanks

I suggest to ask the PHD support, whether they support DirectShow.

Hi, did you get your phd and DBK issue sorted? I'm thinking of using the same combo.

Usually these problems are caused by the impossibility of choosing video formats. The DFK 21AU04 offers Y800, BY8 and YUY2. The default format is Y800. Many programs, especially programs based on the old Video for Windows Interface can not handle these formats. Therefore, they do not list the camera.
