Still relatively new to AP and hitting a brick wall in getting guidance to work on my eq6r pro. Really hoping you guys might be willing to help me out.
I balance the mount well enough I think - it doesn't fall on either axis when i release the clutches and they feel equally heavy to turn on both axis and in either direction on both ra and dec. Polar alignment is done accurately and the guide scope is focused. When I start 1 second or 2 second exposures to find a guide star, it finds one with fwhm around 2 or 3.
But as you can see from the attached image though, guidance aint working I have tried with the scope pointed at different parts of the sky and same problem. There is nothing snagged cable wise and the mount is set to track.
Honestly i am running out of ideas here - could the mount be faulty? I have read that the axes can be stiff? Really grateful for any ideas
