  9. PHD2 guiding - Silly question

    Hello souls33k3r Actually, there are no silly questions, only St...d answers !! is what I think.. , so do not worry about asking, is the only way you can gain knowledge !! Even if you change targets after the calibration is done with at DEC 0, PHD2 will automatically handle autoguiding and no need to re-do calibration if PULSE guiding is used. PHD2 automatically will ead the new Declination coordinates of the new target and will make necessary adjustments for autoguiding to process with success... BUT !! If you guide via or using the ST4 port, then the situation changes, when I guide with or via ST4, I always recalibrate ( actually I prefer PULSE GUIDING ).. Cheers Martin PS! I guess others may also contribute with some answers, and excited to see if my answer or process is supported by others also..
