Thanks for the super quick reply .

Will post a screen shot of the EKOS config screen hen I am home form work , I took a screen shot of the error msg last night as well .

Individually both camera's work fine , and before giving up last night I took 30 x 30sec images of M82  ( the tracking was good enough for round stars !!) 

Guiding is the only thing I seem to fall over on , the align / plate solve using the main scope / main camera was impressive and quick, this software has so much promise  it may even prise me away form Sharpcap !!!
