Problems with guide camera

Recommended Posts



I just received mysetup yesterday a 107 triplet 6.5 and asi 1600mm pro all working first try last night.


I have a Altair 60mm Guide Scope & GPCAM2 Mono Guide Camera Package. The guide camera is the Altair aor130 this is the problem setup.

From here https://www.harrisontelescopes.co.uk/acatalog/altair-60mm-guide-scope-gpcam2-package.html#SID=1729


When in Smartcap i can focus on something in the daytime and see it.

When I use PHD2 i don't see anything except a white screen. If i cover the end of the guide scope the screen goes black.

I have tried altering the gain etc without luck 2nd day trying to get it to work in PHD2.


Any tips?


Regards David
