G11 Closed Loop Tracking new
      #3072566 - 04/28/09 11:14 AM

Hi,
I have a G11 Gemini (level 4 ) that works perfectly...except the closed loop tracking runs far too fast! (loses Saturn within seconds). The mount is accurately aligned and has a good 'model' entered. The goto and standard tracking are all excellent.
Any Ideas? Thanks!

Yes, don't bother with closed loop. For normal visual work sidereal rate should work just fine.

If you are just trying to get a handle on closed loop tracking, then hopefully others can help. I don't use it.
