I spent a fair amount of time getting OpenPHD2 build on a 64bit 10.10.1 Mac... then integrated the new portable OS X/Linux driver to it (it powers TheSkyX's plugin).

I still have some more development todo.. sorting out the image width by the looks of it (I based my PHD camera class on the existing old ATIK16 class).. but it's working :D

Sorted :) There are a couple of super class variables lurking you need to set..

My 383L noise pattern is recognisable.. this will work with any ATIK camera :)

Spent the evening dogfooding the guiding with the OpenPHD2 ATIK.. using EQMac for NEQ6 mount control.

Guided for an hour - rock solid, even with the gusts of winds!
