Greetings everyone I hope y'all doing well,
For the past few days my guiding is not going well. First let me kick off by saying that my polar alignment is almost perfect (done it with Sharpcap and 00°00'03" PAE) and I did balance very well toward the East to compensate those spikes. I've done the maintenance of the mount (HEQ5 Pro) very recently because there was some play in the RA when the mount was lock tight. I this a series of test and tonight I've done it towards Capella. Things were better from the past few nights ago but i can't get near 1" of RMS. I know that Skywatcher said that the RMS should be around that number but I manage to get 0.70" RMS month ago. I'm using ASCOM and pulse guiding combine with APT. The gears looks great and I've got the mount last year. Notes that i've been using PHD2 for 5 month now and I'm new to it. I try to read and get as much information as I can but I can't manage to get a proper guiding. I hope that some of you will light me up.
PS : My mount has not been Belt-modified but I really considered to buy the Rowan Belt mod.
Thanks a lot,
