Here you'll find a Guidemaster Plugin for Atik/Artemis cameras.
I have already taken some nice deep sky pictures using this plugin and an Atik16IC-HS as guidecam, but you should test it yourself before you drive to a remote observing site.
Currently tested Cameras with Guidemaster 2.0.14: Atik16IC-HS and Atik16HR
If you have tested it with a different Atik/Artemis camera, please let me know if it works.
Any kind of feedback, bug reports, suggestions or feature requests are highly appreciated.
Just send me a mail to
|Atik 16IC-HS / Art-424:|
You will need to download FTChipID.dll and copy it into the directory where Guidemaster is installed.
|Atik 16HR / Art-285|
You may have to copy ArtemisCCD.dll (which should be shipped with the camera software) into Guidemasters directory.
|Goto your Guidemaster directory and make a backup of interface.dll; download and extract the zip file with the new interface.dll and replace it with the old one. After you start Guidemaster there should be an a new Videodriver available in the options of "Guiding Imager"|
|Q: Can I use two Atik/Artemis cameras at the same time ? (one for guiding and one for imaging)|
|Q: Where do I specify the cameras pixel size ?|
|A: The pixel size will be detected by the plugin and automatically set.|
|Q: Guidemaster crashes with "Laufzeitfehler 13" (Runtime Error 13), how can I fix this ?|
|A: try this: edit config1.ini and set the value of pixelX and pixelY to 0.|
|Q: Guidemaster crashed and I can't reconnect to the camera!|
|A: Disconnect your camera from its power source, wait a few seconds then reconnect it. Make sure no autoguider.exe is still running and restart Guidemaster.|
|Q: Does this plugin support my cameras ST4 guide port ?|
|A: Not yet.|
|Q: Where can I download FTChipID.dll ?|
