Thanks Craig on this tutorial and offering us a great program - can't imagine what we'd all do without it.

This is a great addition to the manual for PHD. Thanks for writing all of your software Craig, you're a great boon to the community.

Great piece Craig, thanks.
In the article you mention "There are several excellent log file analyzers out there..." Do you have details about any of them?

Excellent resource. This should seriously cut down on numerous posts on internet forums. With so many users of PHD, this should be made a sticky.

Thank you for taking the time.

PECPrep can read a PhD log file and graph it, for one. nominally it's for generating PEC curves but you don't necessarily have to use it like that. it can be told to use the Dec data instead of RA data when converting the file, if you need to look at that.

Two minor corrections (Thanks Adam!)

Box 1: Column 8 should be "Dec Duration"
Box 1: Are there sizable errors building up but the distance columns are zero?” should read “Are there sizable errors building up but the duration columns are zero”.
