ASCOM guiding

Mike Shade

There was a thread recently about setting different guiding than a guider cable...If anyone can comment that would be appreciated:

There are several setting in Maxim to choose from...guider relays, main relays, telescope, micro-guide, and ASCOM direct.  I have been using a traditional guider cable for years but there was a bit here about ASCOM guiding.  I fiddled around with this some time ago but never had successful results, likely had the wrong settings


Roland also offered thoughts on min-max move..

Already, in the gathering dusk, a few of the stars are turning on their lights.

Vega, the brightest one, is now dropping towards the west.  Can it be half

a year since I watched her April rising in the east?  Low in the southwest

Antares blinks a sad farwell to fall...
