Re: Mach1GTO - Crazy calibration with PHD2

Honestly if your DEC gear mesh is reasonably set then I doubt it matters much what you use for DEC. I've always used the default in PHD2 - I think it is 'Auto' where it works it out.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
If you had a mount with considerable DEC backlash it then would make a big difference. In that case you purposely polar misalign slightly so there is a definite drift in one direction for DEC and PHD2 would work it out (using Resist Switch) and only guide in one direction in DEC.
Easiest way I've found to figure out guiding parameters is first set the DEC aggressiveness to 0 and watch the behavior of the mount. Then slowly ramp up aggressiveness and watch the guide graph (enable showing corrections as well) and see how well the guiding corrects for DEC drift. Keep incrementing aggressiveness until you converge on consistent good corrections.
