Hi Doug,



Thank you for the settings and I will try them all out to see what

works best. I have been reading some recent posts in regards to

MaxIm with the SXV-9 camera and hope by the time I get this camera

the bugs will be worked out for all. I enjoy very much using MaxIm

for image capturing and guiding.
