You must be using serial guiding? I think ST-4 is much simpler.
Quote:Not sure if it's the same.
Quote:If you have to use ASCOM, it's because PHD is not supporting the camera, I suppose. If the computer recognizes the camera, next step is to get with Craig on the Yahoogroup.
Quote:Hot pixels, I'd say with probably a few dead ones here and there. And I would certainly expect a camera like this to have a few dead pixels.
Quote:This is with the Loadstar not the Orion autoguider?
Quote:The pic you included in the earlier post is with the lens cap on?
Quote:Lodestars are notorious for their hot pixels; it's uncooled.
