Re: Drift Alignment To Help With Unguided Images

Hi Tony,

It says I need to contact AP to get the CP4 firmware updated?
Might this play into my issue?
If APCC is showing that message means you are not running the latest mount firmware. You can download it from the link below. You may need the password from the manual that came with your mount.

"Pretty sure" will only be confirmed if you do what i suggested - do a guider graph for 10 - 12 minutes with guide
pulses turned off. See what your guide graph looks like, maybe even post a screen shot so we have something to
work with.

Hi,

Thanks all for the input.

The scope I am currently using is a C11 Edge (the mirror is "locked down" - but who knows??). Image scale is .44
with the ML16200. Hopefully will upgrade to a Planewave 12.5 in the near future and kiss possible mirror shift
goodbye :)

Pretty sure the encoders were on - but will double check tonight. I also have tracking and pointing corrections on in
APPM.

The only message I've noted of late is that my CP4 firmware needs to be updated?
