QHY8 pro drivers question

I've been using the QHY8 pro win 32/64 bit drivers in combination with Nebulosity for a year without any issues but have often wondered what the ASCOM drivers offered.

I'm wondering if it is possible to install both the Win driver and the ASCOM drivers then choose which one to use in Nebulosity - ie choose either QHY8 pro or Ascom camera in Nebulosity?

I believe I installed both on my Dell Inspiron Laptop I use for imaging at the time I installed Win764, but found that since Neb was happy with the QHY drivers, I never bothered trying the ASCOM ones.

I then bought a QHY9M + filter wheel and also use the QHY drivers, as they seem to take care of both items quite well. I have yet to put ASCOM 6 on this machine though, as it's purely for imaging.
