Quote:Now.... if we can just get Guiding going......I got my first response back from Craig (PHD)...I had mentioned to him that i was trying to guide in Alt/AZ.
Quote:Early morning report (its midnight here).PHD would not guide. Not sure why. It performed calibrations (or so it said), but i don't think it really did as it should. The target star would always be going "down", when it was reporting W, E, S, N. And then when it would start "guiding", the star would drift "down", and out of the box (in short order). As soon as it left the box, PHD would turn off commands (disconnect), and the star movement would stop. I did create logs, so will analize them in the morning.Interestingly, this is the same pattern that Envisage displayed.
Quote:The truth here is this mount did NOT work as advertized out of the box. PERIOD.. and to fix it YOU have to buy more product from the manufacture to fix HIS error.

I lost count of my scopes. Now I just want mobility. I came, I saw, I bought some interesting accessories, and put names to faces: NEAF 2012, ASAE 2012, SWAP 2013, ASAE 2013.
