Autoguiding in dec?
Posted 03 April 2009 - 03:57 PM
I'm imaging with a LXD75 which is giving me some trouble. I did a few test tonight, and found that it was better to turn off dec. guiding in PhD. 4min frames looked then ok. But, if I don't guide in dec, should I then
1. Do the normal 2 star alignment (as usual) which will likely result in autostar doing some small ammount of dec-tracking due to imperfect polar alignment
2. Use only RA tracking (no alignment), and forget about dec all-thogether?
What do you think?
Do you use dec guiding at all?

I don't really like drift alignment... How long do you spend on this? And do you use software like EQAlign to do it?
