Hope everyone is safe and healthy. Have a few questions and may need some one-on-one help here. I feel I have excercised all the tricks and tips I know and I am still dead in the water.
I have been using PHD2 with my EQ6R for about 3-4 months with very good success, previous it was the AVX and that did well, but it was at its payload limit and wind was a factor. With the EQ6R it’s been smooth sailing under .5 RMS most nights.
Enter the month of September and since then I have captured 1 (one) 300s sub. Biggest issue was wavering calibrations. It would take 5-7 calibrations in one night to get an Ok one and still get 1.5-2 RMS. This happened overnight. All the usual suspects are checked -snags-mechanical issues- all of the above. Nada! And then it’s cloudy for a month and tonight was my first clear 3 hour block in 28 days to try and troubleshoot and PHD2 no longer sees my guide camera on my system.
I restarted, reinstalled PHD2, reinstalled NINA, reinstalled ASCOM, reinstalled ZWO drivers. Tried 3 USB cables, took off the hub and plugged directly into the laptop. Everything. And PHD2 doesn’t see the guide camera. All of my other applications see it. I use SharpCap to PA so it saw it immediately and I got a clear beautiful image from the guide scope and camera. NINA can switch to it and see everything as well. APT sees it as well.
The gear works... I've narrowed PHD2 is the root issue and the solution evades me.
I’m at a loss. Can I get some help here?
