Quote:Howdy folks,I have a 8-inch Newtonian that I use with my Meade LXD75 mount. I try to autoguide using an Orion Starshoot autoguiding camera. About half the time it works great, but lots of times, it won't track in the declination direction. It almost always tracks in RA, but a lot of times, it simply won't even calibrate in the Dec direction. Sometimes even in the same session it will work for a while, then I'll go to a different part of the sky, try to re-calibrate, and the Dec direction is useless. My computer is communicating with the mount, it can move the mount in the Dec direction, and the weights are slightly unbalanced. I don't even know where to begin troubleshooting. Does anyone have any thoughts about why it wouldn't work?Thanks

Quote:OK, so if you're having trouble with the guide package, why not contact the vendor? Same goes for the guide software.
