Looking for ASI 120 MM USB 2.0 camera firmware --- asi120mm-compatible.iic

Hello
New to the forum and to Indy

I recently moved my setup to Stellarmate/Ekos.
I found that my guide camera, despite being recognized, does not work under Ekos due to the specific non standard setup of USB
The camera still works fine under Windows.

Research points to this forum where some people flashed the camera firmware with a different firmware provided by ZWO (asi120mm-compatible.iic)

Now, the flashing tool is still on ZWO web site, but the firmware is no longer there (at least I am unable to find)

Does anyone have a copy ? where can I download it ?

thanks
best regards

Welcome.

Weird... I can't find it anymore either on the ASI site either.

I do have a copy of it; I actually sold my ASI 120 MM last summer but never deleted the files.

The thing is I doubt it'll make much difference as it made none to me when I updated mine with it. Getting a powered USB 3.0 hub is the one thing that seems to make the most difference.

Hello Thanks for pointing that out !!!

I downloaded the file again and .... the content is now changed (from few days ago) and I can see the ASI120MM-compatible.iic is there now
Interesting they did not change the zip file name

Anyway, I now flashed the firmware and I can now confirm that my 120MM now works and acquires images correctly!!!! :-)
Looking toward good weather now.

Thanks all for your support

I would not get my hopes up too high. I also thought that the camera would be working fine after flashing it, I got images and celebrated victory.
Unfortunately, upon using it for real I found that it would periodically garble a frame, thus completely throwing off the guiding and destroying frame after frame.
I would suggest you get the 120MM-S (USB3 version). No problem with that at all now in almost 2 years of continuous use.
It will save you a lot of frustration.
