    USB hub

    Great info....thanks. The asi224 and D7000 both worked through a non-powered hub into SharpCap and APT respectively....no issues. PHD2 on the other hand, didn't like the 224 through that hub....maybe a powered hub would keep PHD2 happy. And I want to use BYN so I'll deal with the "Nikon thru a hub to BYN" issue.

    USB hub

    There is also a Big Difference in USB Hubs - between Cheapos and Solidly-built Unit - and between Chipsets Used. There is also a Difference between Powered and Unpowered Hubs. Your D7000 is self-powered, but your ASI224 is USB-powered. Make sure that you get a Powered Hub for use with the ASI224 - it will make a World of Difference. Powered Hubs also help overcome any effects of Cheap Thin-gauge USB Cables or Longer Cables in general. My preferred brands are ANKER and ASUS and NEEWER. (Note: You can also throttle-down the USB Port Throughput of the ASI224 to good effect -ZWO is notorious for setting their USB Interface chips at FULL-SPEED even when they know the problems are bad. I live in a Canon BYE and CMOS world, so I can't stipulate any specific USB Hubs which I've known to work with older Nikons. But, the brands listed above are Good Ones.

    USB hub

    Unfortunately my laptop has its three ports on one side. The connection issue doesn't really affect me right now as I only do frame/focus in BYN and then disconnect to use my intervelometer. Once I get the DSUSB hooked up I'll be capturing from BYN and will find out quickly if everything plays together...particularly 224-->PHD2 and D7000-->BYN. Thanks to the crappy weather we've had here, I've been able to set up in the garage and iron out most of the issues. Thanks again...great support here! Kevin

    USB hub

    Does you laptop have usb ports on both sides? If there is, it is very likely that usb ports on each side have separate host usb bus inside your computer. Make sure you don't connect both cameras on the same side, that will help as well. Regards,

    USB hub

    Thanks for the quick response guys! Kind of what I figured...the handset & DSUSB should work on a hub. And on the evenings when nothing seems to work I can always go back to live view on the camera and intervelometer (which is how I've done the majority of my imaging up until now) Only added the computer a few weeks ago for autoguiding, and figured I best get used to it before my trusty D7000 clicks out and I move to a dedicated CCD...or CMOS.

    USB hub

    BYN doesn't care if you use a hub or not; but the Nikon SDK might. The key is the amount of data being transferred and any given time. If you plug your camera in a hub along with other devices that are data hungry, the usb host may get saturated with data and this is where things start to go downhill... the Nikon SDK will see this as a camera disconnect since it's expecting instant communication and it's being delayed by the over saturated hub. Separate your cables and use a hub only for a few low data items. The DSUSB cable is a good candidate for a hub, your handset too. Regards,

    USB hub

    Kevin, The problem with using a hub with your Nikon camera occurs in the Nikon SDK's communication with the camera. Since BYN relies on the SDK, this means that BYN is at the mercy of the limitations of the SDK. In short, if a fix comes it will be due to Nikon "fixing" their SDK to eliminate the hub limitation. Certainly this seems possible since their main competitor (Canon) has no such limitation. In the meantime, you could try to use only Microsoft certified cabling and high-quality, powered hubs to try to try to find a combo that works. Also make sure to pay particular attention to keeping the cable lengths shorter than the USB specification and no longer than is necessary.

    USB hub

    Got BYN up and running last night with my D7000. Love the frame/focus feature!! Waiting for my DSUSB cable to arrive but I'm realizing I'll soon run out of usb ports. Found out quickly that BYN doesn't like a hub...so I ran straight in and it worked no problem. The issue for me is the 'no hub' deal. PHD2 doesn't like to see my asi224 on a hub..took it off....BYN needs a port , so I'll only have one left (out of 3) DSUSB will need one and my handset one also. I'm hoping the DSUSB cable and the handset can run on a hub taken from my last free port on the computer. Any chance BYN will ever play nice with a hub or is it an issue that is likely to remain? Thanks in advance, Kevin W.

  14. Baader: Baader's New Ultra Narrowband Enforced Filters  These three sizes of Ultra-Narrowband filters upen up the extremely narrow H-alpha, O-III, and S-II world.  This enforced contrast provides more signal of the faintest nebula detail.  Manufacturing such ultra-narrow filters requires extreme coating homogeneity and very high Center Wavelenth Precision, which these filters have been designed for.  Designed for use on optical systems from f/10 to f/3.5.

    Now available in all popular sizes; 1.25"Mounted, 2" Mounted, 31mm Round, 36mm Round, 50.4mm Round, 50x50 Square, and 65x65mm Square.
     

    NOTE:  In general, the H-alpha ultra narrowband  filter is not suitable for solar observation.  The half-bandwidth of 3.5nm equals 35 angstroms, much wider than needed for high quality solar observation (sub-angstrom).  Never use this filter for visual observation of the sun.
