PHD calibration each time I change object ? new
      #5559869 - 12/07/12 07:42 PM

I have the Orion mini 50mm + starshoot autoguider kit but did not use it yet because of the bad weather...
My question is ,will I have to wait for PHD to calibrate
every time I change the target ?? And do you have some tips
to dodge any problem that can occur ???
And what exposition setting is best to start with ???
Thank you all !
Maxx

No. The only time you really need to recalibrate is if you cross the Local Meridian. Oh, be sure you increase the cal steps--to around maybe 2000 or you will wait a long time for PHD to calbrate with the 50mm. Otherwise? Purty much plug and play for moi.
