    I've had some of the most awesome weather so far this year and the year isn't over. If something is going to go crazy this is the time, dsi lll had to go to the dr. and see if he can revive it. Now I've got phd2 acting ugly and the cam isn't connecting or is it? I get a message across the top of the screen " your camera has been disconnected and then an image appears on the screen, I then try to adjust the focus for tighter stars with the helical. I have to reconnect the camera and take another image and nothing happens over and over. Anyone got any advice to remedy this problem?

    What did you 'fix' to make it connect?

    Well ya know , nothing lasts forever especially these days when everything is made cheaper . The DSI lll color was a 3rd hand cam and I got a lil' over a year with it and a whole lot of experience while using it.
