Off axis guiding


Recommended Posts

I'm currently guiding using a guide scope, quite successful I might add..

but...I'm looking at guiding with longer focal lengths and off course off axis wins out here, I use a QSI 583 wsg so it has the off axis capability and with my qhy5L-ii mono it's a good system potentially.

What prevents me from switching over completely to off axis is the filter offsets between my Astrodon nb filters and my astronomik lum filter...

my question is: how do imagers find the issue of offsets in off axis guiding?

i generally only use my lum filter for plate solving and focusing so that's not a major issue, but Sgpro doesn't yet allow me to pause guiding during focus etc

O.k folks cheers for the replies, I have got pause guiding ticked so to speak, but it doesn't work for me! Odd....I'll recheck it out..

yes it is the focus I bother about, my offset is quite large between the Astronomik lum filter and my 3 nm Astrodons.
