Genika is now working with USB PGR cameras in both 32 and 64 bits (Genika has the two versions). As for GigE I coded it, but I have nothing to test it and in the PGR SDK, GigE management is different from USB. And I think that doing that at a distance would require a lot of tests. Depends on the time you have Mark.
I should buy a GigE camera as it would be difficult to find one to lend nearby in France, PGR is almost non existent here.

I'm happy to download Genika and give it a go Fred, as long as I know what to report back to you i'm happy to have a play around.

You should speak to Rupert at Astrograph, i'm sure he would loan you a PGR GigE camera, then you could send him some SSMs and I could buy one off him ;)

Tried the PGR GigE with Genika and could not get it running.

I managed to repair my other PGG Grasshopper 3. One of the ribbon cables inside the camera was loose...

I opened it verified everything and it is running now.

I have to confess that I'm good with a screw driver but I do not know anything about electronics...

best regards

I downloaded Genika from the website but the version I downloaded does not want to work with PGR

Mark, did Frederic send you a link? it needs to be coded to your camera serial number.

It works very well with my Grasshopper 3 (USB3), I just need some sunshine to test it properly. I am itching to try out the 'mosaic help' function :) next on my list is the SSM :hamster:

Great Pedro. It should work fine with your USB camera.
Mark, send me the serial of your camera to fjabet at airylab.com

Hi Fred

Ironically it has been on the 'to do' list to ask you update Genika to work with all PGR cameras, particularly that we are now a dealer of yours.

I will send you an email

Best Regards
