I've had another look at the plots and I'm still struggling to get it to show me anything.
Thats cos there is nothing there.
In reality, when testing you only need to use traces 6 and 8
ie Raw and Raw as arcsecs
I was also monitoring the PHD guiding and I could see the corrections being applied and the response of the guide star.
OK, in that case, it should be sending real pulses
I've also run PHD in manual mode and issued large manual corrections (5000ms) during a training run and I still cant get anything to show up in PEC data.
What speed was the handbox set to????
PEC will only get registered if the handbox is set to speed 1.
The fact you got a model to work yesterday at lunch indicates it did work
so something else is going on.
When using PHD, were you using "Pulse Guiding" or default guiding
( as they use different commands that behave differently )
What ASCOM driver are you using??? ( as old drivers may not know the LX85 )
If you set serial tracing ON in the driver, you can then view the ASCOM log
to see what commands are getting sent.
Pulseguides will be like :Mgxdddd# where x = n,s,e,w and dddd = millisecs
Normal "moves" will be :Mx# followed by :Qx#
Also do you think it makes a difference if I guide using ST4 or Ascom?
As per above, ASCOM can actually cover 2 modes.
ST4 should always work, but can hog CPU time
Just for fun, and as an indoor test
Start your mount and get it dummy aligned
Connect my app.
Go to the "Misc Utils" tab and click the "Slew/Focus Test" option
A floating dialog will appear, and in the middle is a "pulseguide" section.
Set the rate to say 200 first
Start a PEC train on the mount and once running, use the E or W direction keys
to send pulses to the mount as each bin changes
After a few at 200, set it to 100 and repeat then set it to 50 and repeat.
When done, reread the PEC from the mount and see if its there.
Also, save the log at that point.
If there is no model stored, send me the log.
