    Have you watched the youtube demo? Steve Chambers showed this on the video, you just need more subs to get rid of the lines. Nigel

    Mesu200 PHD calibration

    I have the same results with my Mesu 200. Although the number of steps is 2 to 1 I accept the calibration. The guiding graph for a 6 hour cession @ 4 sec exposure Sunday night was +/- 0.25 pixel. I read in another thread that someone had the same problem with Eqmod, so it looks like it maybe a PHD2 problem Nigel

    Star Discovery Problem

    Hello Shaun I notice you are based in London, so you are close to the Meridian. Have you checked that you have the correct East/West settings. If you have an Android phone or tablet, there is a free app called Synscaninit. This will display the settings you need to input in the correct order. Hope this helps Nigel
