Hi All,

Does anyone use the Starlight Express MX5 for guiding? One has come up for sale and wondered if the old serial link converted to USB (USB 1.1 i think) works with INDI/KStars/EKOS. I'm worried about the download time/frame updates during guiding.

Best wishes,
Will.

Replied by Andrew on topic Starlight Express MX5

hi Will, I have one but had to drop it since the indi drivers don't work with it.

Peter and I tried hard to make a fit (see indilib.org/forum/general/7-starlight-xp...cluded-in-sx.html#20) without success which is a pity since it remain a great ccd for guiding and mine is still working on XP virtual machine.

Thanks for the reply. I had looked up the mx5 in the search tab and combed all the results but somehow missed the thread.

That's rather unfortunate but useful info.

Best wishes,
Will.
