Hello everyone!

 

The Nextar manual is mute on the process and workflow for PEC recording and playback.

 

A CN search gives some information but also some conflicting information (such as does a new recording need to be made each session).

 

I plan to use PPEC in PHD2 but the PHD2 manual recommends also using the mounts PEC in addition to the PHD2 algorithm.

 

I get VERY little clear sky time and when I do it is often COLD. I would like to know how to bust this out without spending good imagining time doing R&D. 
 

 

Can someone please post a detailed walkthrough for the Nextar?

 

 

It would be great to includes such things as do I point to a particular part of the sky? Is there a recommended N.Hemisphere target?

 

Are there any restrictions on the guiding I use during the recording?

 

How long is this going to take?

 

Thanks!!
