ZWO Camera ASI 120MM Mini Mono with StellarMate? #44325
Again, I can only speak for the ASI120MM (USB2) and the ASI120MM-S (USB3), not for the ASI120MM mini, but as the other thread also concludes, the USB2 versions are just trouble. I tried the ASI120MM using 8 bit instead of 16 bit (which is not required for guiding anyway), but as I wrote, even with the firmware flash (which then actually produced a picture, vs no picture before) it remained unreliable. Too many frames dropped and garbled to make it useful for guiding.
I would get rid of it and go for the ASI120MM-S, which for me works without any hitch at all on Linux.

Same for me, my ZWO ASI120MM Mini just works on both Windows and INDI.
My Altair GPCAM MT9m034M Mono is a different story, it's never worked on INDI and while it used to work on Windows now, with the latest driver updates, it doesn't. This is a rebadged ToupTek camera and neither Altair not Toupteck have shown the slightest interest in sorting this. Rumour has it that it depends on the type of hardware, some work and some don't.
Altair and Touptek have been added to the list of companies I won't buy anything from that uses electricity.

I received my new ToupTek Camera model GP1200KMB today and I am very happy to let you know that it works very good with StellarMate out of the box.
I don't have the same stability issues that I did with the ZWO ASI 120MM Mini Mono camera.

Where does this firmware come from? And is it for the 120mm or the mini?
My ASI 120MM and MC works like CR*P with messed up frames all over on RPI 3. Tried flashing the 'compatibility' firmware, and it does not work any better with or without...

To my best of knowledge that firmware is for ASI120MM/MC and not for the mini since there is no downloadable firmware for the mini. This essentially is the compatibility firmware that you probably already applied. I did the same thing once and never got my ASI120MC to work properly as well so I replaced it with an ASI120MC-S (USB3 version) and that works like a charm.

A search on 'cypress chipsets usb' should throw it up. I always had difficulty finding it so when I had it working, I saved a copy.
I have only tested it on Ubuntu on a Dell laptop. The reason we needed it is that we didn't have a spare usb2 port. You can choose which zwo model you have on the command line when you update the firmware.
