Celestron NexImage - Please Help!!

Postby mister c » Sun Jun 28, 2015 6:48 pm

I hope someone can help a newbie in astrophotography. I just bought a Celestron NexImage 5, and I followed the instructions to install the software on my PC. I hooked up the camera to the telescope and plugged the USB into the PC, and the driver files appeared to do their thing. It said that software installation was successful, but the icon for the NexImage 5 is missing from the desktop and when I look in Program Files I can't see it. Weird, as the other software installed OK and their icons are present. If anyone can help me I would be extremely grateful, it's been driving me nuts! Many thanks.

Since I am about to offer a wild guess you may need to disregard it:
The installer has installed a device driver for the camera. You will only notice it when running programs that use it, and then only when the camera is plugged in and detected. I assume the camera came with a control and video capture program? Does it work with the camera?
