No i can't, i use now an additionally guide scope and ASI 120 mm
and phd2 to guide , may be the idea from kurt to use ipolar as guiding cam works , but how accurate is the method ?
Very frustrating , and in my opinion not necessary in 2022 ! !

Hello Max , did you play with the driver options
such as in devices/ccd/webcams described ? I cannot understand, why a simple webcamdriver is not possible to build for a simple webcam in 2022 !!!! in a mountpackage GEM 45 G for more than 3000 € . Developer said Ioptron must help , ioptron said thirdparty developers must react ?
Many of us use recently
the possibility to control the Equipment via Rasperry Pi . I think ioptron didn't know that ? With Windows 10 pro and ascom driver Ipolar and iguider worked both fine . With rasperry Pi only ipolar work properly. My second way is a second !!!!!! guiding scope with a additional second guiding cam , with not so much sense . That speaks not for the manufacturer !
Best wishes Rainer

Hello max thanks for your answer , i will try the 32 bit version and instead of iguiderdriver i will try the
the webcamdriver , see device section ccd cams here in indilib.org , you can find a very good documentation there , i hope than the guider works , best wishes Rainer !

Hello Jasem, thank you for your answer,its useful to contact ioptron ? Or would you send back the mount ? I bought the mount because ipolar and Iguider onboard and i love stellarmate und Pi ! Alternativ i must use APT and ioptrons software on my laptop , any solution possible ? But in my opinion is stellarmate in combination with RPi the absolutaly best solution . Best wishes Rainer

Hi all out there, i am new in this problems .
I bought an Ioptron GEM 45 G for my new Apo . All worked fine , but i think i have a driver problem with i Guider for guiding .
I work with a RP 4 an a windows laptop i5 with stellarmate 1.7.0 newest version .
All devices recognized , but the builtin IGuder from ioptron disconnect after several seconds / minutes spontaneously ??? I used Iguiderdriver, V4L2, Indi-Webcam driver,
but no properly function . If i used the connection Ioptron GEM 45 G directly to the Laptop , all cams ok und all functions ok . So i think problem is a software-Driver problem ???? I am very sad to put away my life time ; ((((((( I am 66 years old and i need your help .
Best regardsRainer
