What's the fastest sustained image rate a Meade DSI II pro can do?

I just wondered how fast a Meade DSI II Pro can actually capture and present a series of images?

I was watching PHD image Jupiter last night and even when I selected an image speed of 0.05 secs or 0.1 seconds - the fastest frame rate looked like 1/2 sec to me.

Does this indicate either its dropped down from a USB 2 to a USB 1 or something else is limiting how fast the Meade DSI II can capture and send images to my PC?

Many thanks,

Matthew

Well after alot of effort I got the DSI II Pro driver installed again and ensured it was connected to an (enhanced) usb 2 hub.

Interestingly at its fasted 0.05 seconds I'd say refreshing about 4 times a second now under PHD. Under Envisage with a capture speed of 0.014 seconds I say it was maybe refreshing 10 - 20 times a second.

So it off to ask Craig Stark a question!
