Title: Autoguiding
Post by: ultramol on August 08, 2016, 15:17:26
Hello there, can anyone tell me if this will work
1 Guide camera plugged in to PC
2 Astroeq plugged into motors and PC
3 PC running PHD2, EQmod, CdeC
Do I need anything else to attempt to autoguide. I am a bit confused as to what else I may need, if anything. I keep coming across ST4 connectors to serial, ST4 to usb and I am not sure as to what to do. I am hoping AstroEQ will be right for the task of moving the motors during guiding.
Thanks for your help
Regards.....Geoff

Hi Geoff,

No need for ST4. PHD2 sends its guide commands to AstroEQ via EQMOD, thus eliminating the need for an extra ST4 device.

Thanks Tom. I will now attempt to use guiding to better my imaging.
