LuSol Guide Windows 11 camera not detected

Post by Martin_S »

I've been using this app for a while on my windows 10 laptop with no problems. I thought I would try it on my Windows 11 PC .
For some reason it will not detect the camera. Does anybody have any Idea why I am having this issue?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated , thank you.

Martin

LuSol needs the DirectX "DirectShow" camera driver installed.
Sometimes listed as "legacy camera drivers".
eg
PlayerOne: https://player-one-astronomy.com/service/software/ select "Camera DirectShow Driver"
ZWO: https://www.zwoastro.com/software/ go to "Others" then "DirectShow Driver"

I use LuSol + ZWO ASI 120MM Mini.

Although I spent the best part of 4 hours levelling/tweaking/undrifting on my erratic "Italian pseudo conrete slate" patio that I can stay aligned now for 30 minutes before nudging. My tripod footprint is now perma-marked on the patio and the tripod leg clamps are now tighter than a Nuns knickers. One of the legs on my iOptron tripod doesn't bind unless anger is liberally applied.
