Hi All! I have guiding problem with the following guider setup: 9x50 finder + ZWO ASI 120mm mini + PHD2. The imaging scope is a 6' newtonian + canon dslr on a HEQ5, driven by a laptop via diy EQDIR cable. When the mount is set up and running correctly, polar aligned and all... I connect the guider camera and mount with phd2. All nice and easy, I run a calibration, then it starts to guide. All seems ok. Then I am starting to take pictures. The first seems OK, then the second have the star trails... I check phd2 and there is a message: the camera (ASI) did not take a picture for "xy" seconds so it is disconnected. Grrr.... I reconnect try to set up a longer period for "xy" in the settings as mentioned in the message. And all the same again and again. Whatever I add for connection timeout for the camera, it just reaches that and disconnect the camera. PHD + philips toucam has worked for me flowlessly. I changed to PHD2 because I gave myself a birthday present, the little ZWO camera. (and PHD did not recognize it) Do you have any idea what can be the problem? I will contact PHD2 help also, but maybe somebody had already the same problem and figured out how to overcome. I am almost sure I make some dumb mistake in the PHD2 software settings, however I tried to change only what was needed.
