Re: Olympus Capture with USB active cable extention?

I use an non active 5m usb extension cable to a laptop USB 3 port for astrophotography. The camera is on a tracker outside and me and my laptop are in the shed near a heater My laptop is a low spec dual core ASUS running W10 and I am pushing it to run Oly Capture and Oly Viewer 3. I use on the time lapse mode and it saves the frames to card and an external drive also USB3. I have not experience any download / control problems using this longer cable.
