    PHD2 Setting Up

    I use PHD 1.2 for this very reason! Ron
  3. SOLD (Mods please remove at your leisure) Selling HEQ5 Pro complete due to upgrading. It had a belt mod done 2 years ago and has no problems. Complete with tripod and handset. £500 ono and collect from Newark on Trent. Photo's of guiding graph (PHD 1.2), mount and Rosette neb taken earlier this year. Thanks Ron
  4. Here's my effort with your data: I think you need to get a tighter focus, are you using a Batinov mask?? Just used DSS and a tweak in PS3. Cheers Ron
  5. I NEVER unlock and move the mount, the encoders get lost and that's where the problems start. A good, level PA and start at the Home position should work, when you finish use 'Hibernate' to remember the settings etc. Love my Wifi, the handset has been gathering dust since January!! Ron

    Synscan and the 'Home" setting

    Note that, wherever you are in the sky left, right, up and down will move the scope in different directions. You have to be looking in the eyepiece or guide scope to see which way it moves! NEVER loose the clutches and move your scope, it will get totally lost. If this happens, park the scope, power off THEN move the mount to it's home position manually. That's the only way! Ron

    Checking FITS Files

    If your stacking in DSS then using the slider at the top right you can view each file and uncheck it if not needed.. Hope this is of help? Cheers Ron
