Hi ! just bought an ASI094MC pro from Bintel In Australia.
I am having some issues with using the camera in APT- I have posted on that forum as well.
I have downloaded the latest ZWO driver and the APT version is current (3.40)
I got to 7 dark frames last night (300 sec at -20) then it just said busy and stopped.
I am using Windows 8 and a USB 3 active extension as the USB 3 that came with the camera is too short for my observatory.
I will try to do the same in SharpCap later but would really like to solve this as I love APT.
My USB speed was 90 . Set to Raw 16 Fits output in Sharp capture ( I assume these are migrated to the ascom driver as there is no way to set these in the APT or Ascom boxes?)
Many thanks
Graham

Hi I think Ivo at APT has the answer- I tried a series of 300sec darks last night and it didn't hang. In settings, go to CCD settings and tick higher CCD function . ( in APT)
Cheers
Graham

OK that worked for one session and now I am getting the busy hang ups in APT and in Sharp Cap.
Could not take a frame last night at all. I m using Windows 8.1 and an active USB 3 extension cable if that makes a difference. All my drivers are up to date
Help me please as I cannot use this camera currently

Try a lower usb speed in the camera driver settings window. I had the same problem with my ASI1600 and APT until I lowered the usb speed to 40.

I am not sure this is because of the extension cable or not
but please test without it at first
