I have recently purchased a new IMAC, OSX 10.8.2
I followed instructions shown on the Celestron web site.
Computer was shut down
USB cord of camera was plugged int USB port on computer ( not keyboard)
Computer was started.
Photobooth was started.
Built in camera on IMAC starts working and works fine.
Celestron microscope was listed under Camera button at top of screen
When Celestron is chosen as the camera a revolving loading ICON is shown but that is all
Not image from Celestron microscope is shown.
I use this in my small business to take images of small machine parts. It has been quite useful and want to continue using it with the IMAC.
I checked the USB information and with the microscope plugged to a USB port I find the Microscope listed. See below.
Celestron Digital Microscope:
Product ID: 0x0105
Vendor ID: 0x19b4
Serial Number: Celestron Digital Microscope
Speed: Up to 480 Mb/sec
Manufacturer: Celestron Digital Microscope
Location ID: 0x1a131000 / 7
Current Available (mA): 500
Current Required (mA): 500
Celestrons last response was :
"The microscope should work with both PC and MAC. There is no drivers for MAC since photobooth is being used. You may have a defective microscope that does not work with the MAC and needs to be replaced."
Since the microscope continues to work fine on the PC I am not sure if it is a problem with the microscope or the IMac. I guess there is no actual install procedure because it is using drivers from photo booth (??)
Suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
