The last two nights were the first chance I had to get going with PHD2 on my new iEXOS mount. The first night I used my Revolution2 Imager camera and Orion 50mm guide scope. I PA'd with Sharpcap Pro and ran the calibration (see the screenshot) and for some reason the PHD2 log is gone now and the Guide Assistant. I two star aligned using Starry Night8 and slewed to Alnitak just to see what I'd see. I tried several 6 minute exposures and got nice round stars but the Red/Blue lines looked like Picasso's rendering of a lumberjack's saw. Last night I changed to my ZWOASI224MC camera did the calibration, Guide assistant which told me I was 20 arc-min off PA so I re-did PA on Sharpcap.
I slewed to Rosette Nebula and tried some 5-6 minute exposures and got nice round stars but that's all I got. Not a good night for "seeing". Anyhoo.....the graph on PHD2 looked terrible to me but the stars are round. I'll attach the screenshot's and the one log from last night. Please look them over and let me know if I'm doing good or I need to change something.
Thanks and hope everyone is safe!
