  1. Many people on here use a 50 mm guide scope, by using a Finder scope and attaching a small CMOS guide camera.. There is a set up for sale on here c£70.. Ron
  2. I have used my finder/guider scope on 3 different scopes and 2 different mounts. Never had a problem with it but I DON'T use PHD2, I have used PHD 1.4 throughout and had no problem. Just my take on it but my guiding has improved since I got an iPolar PA cam fitted! Ron
  3. Hi, use 'Shift' and click the mouse on Connect..
  4. That's a decision you must make, try just dithering and process the image. Then add Darks and see if there's any improvement?? I find Flats more beneficial than Darks for my imaging although I'm just changing from a DSLR to a CCD cam! Ron
  5. If you use PHD for guiding, you can Dither and then you won't need Darks. Saves a lot of time, I have a library of Flats that I use also. Ron
  6. NOW SOLD Mods please remove..
