Hi all, Im living in a fairly light polluted area, and have a Skywatcher 200p on an eq5 pro mount (which does have a synscan hand controller which has an autoguider port) and ive got a webcam which ive converted to fit in a standard eye piece. My question is, when i connect it to the finder scope what wires do i need to buy to use it for autoguiding, i figure i need a st4 to usb cable, but everywhere ive looked has said i need a GPUSB device, im planning on using PHD guider but have also heard i may need eqmod and would just like some clarification on what i actually need to purchase thanks Daniel
This is the first test run of my finder guider set up on my Skywatcher 150PL and EQ3/2 Pro. About an hour and a quarters worth of exposures at ISO1600 (just thought I'd try the higher ISO) with flats. darks and bias. About 30 minutes of 5 minute subs, the rest made up of 3 minutes and 1 minute subs. It seems less noisy than my other M31 unguided attempt. Hopefully the images will get a bit better as I get use to the guiding system.
