Guide Star


Recommended Posts

How close to the imaging object does the guide star have to be?

At the moment I center both scopes on a bright star and use whatever is in the FOV when imaging. I'm using a celestron 8se for imaging and a st80 for guiding so quite a difference in FOV.

What im doing at the moment works ok for me but is there any rule of thumb?
