Re: Mach2 and PHD2 Guiding recommendations

This whole data set was taken unguided:

AG Optical 10" iDK | FLI Ml16200 | AP1100 AE

Using my standard 80pt APCC model I always use. Works a charm. I should have actually dialed back the L frames. All subs were 5 minutes.

Hi Dean,
nice curve, but I think it's the least of things with this frame.
But "No modeling or other fancy stuff yet.", I personally went for my 130GT without guidance.
  Frame received Wednesday 6 p.m., Thursday 1st modeling of 35 points and conclusive tests ... Friday clouds ... Yesterday Saturday 2nd modeling 86 points, with a small series of photos on M109 (cropped version) and a checking of pointing ... the score seems pretty good to me and I still have to know if with the return of deviations below 0.65 arc.min this is correct.
But without guidance last night, here, with 14 exposures of 6, 'what I get with my AP130 GT and a QHY294c (recent for me).
No longer having to guide is only happiness.
