Lx200gps ra pec updating

As Matt highlights, the best possible way to record PEC is to perform multiple runs. If your mount supports it, you can record multiple runs and average them.

This is something can be performed with the Gemini system. By performing multiple runs, it is possible to eliminate seeing conditions influencing the result thus what you get is the raw PE of your mount.

Happy to say managed to get all the bits and bobs of my autoguiding setup to talk to each other and work!!

:eyepop: Then a thought arose, (lookout, dangerous cogs turning! Could I use the webcam and software etc to train the drive on the mount in PEC mode? I thought, probably not as on the Syn Scan V3.10 handset it looks like a manual affair by pushing buttons but I wondered if it might be possible on my low-end setup.

I’ve been using it for approx two years and swear by it.If you balance too finely, your worm can occilate slightly causing your stars to elongate slightly if there is a lot of play in the gears.As already said, set you backlash to zero, PHD will do a check on your backlash and compensate accordingly.A longer focal length would obviously emphasise PE more.Ultimately, you should record the PEC curve at the focal length you’re imaging at or what ever is the longest instrument you have.
