  1. If you are using an auto-guiding scope and ccd with PHD, do you need to worry about drift alignment and/or periodic error correction of the mount?
  2. As a rookie astrophotographer, I have recently acquired a star adventurer mount. Seeing the port marked "Auto Guider" it sure seems to me that the manufacturer intended the mount to be used this way. But the documentation on this capability or connection is non existent. I bumped into something called phd2..it seems there is hope. Do I need a guide scope or can the mount take direction directly from phd2? Obviously i am somewhat confused. Any guidance out there? Thanks in advance.
  3. hello all.. i'm hoping someone can help me here. i'm trying to hook up my SW EQ3 Pro SynScan mount and ZWO ASI120MC guide camera with PHD2. I haven't done any auto guiding before, so forgive me if my questions are a bit dumb.. I've read quite a few bits online, but get confused with the terminology half the time. I've got my guide camera connected to my laptop via USB, and the SynScan connected via ST4 to USB too. I've downloaded and installed all the mount drivers I need (I think?), but nothing seems to happen when i try to control the mount with PHD2. Any thoughts or advice would be gratefully received and acted upon immediately - it's clear out tonight! If you can, please help.. you're my only hope. Thank you.. RAWz. ps: I have posted this question in another thread, but feared it may get buried. My setup: Skywatcher ED80 Pro Telescope + Skywatcher EQ3 Pro SynScan Mount and Tripod + ZWO ASI120MC Guide Camera + Canon EOS 550D + Microsoft LifeCam Polar Cam + PC or MAC.
