Ken - One thing I discovered about the ASIAIR version of PhD guiding is that you have to set the guiding rate to 1X in TWO places - on the AP hand controller keypad (or on AP mount software if using that) and on the ASIAIR pull-out tab (it pulls out to the left from the right-side vertical control panel). This ASIAIR pull-out tab is the same one you use to select your target and direct a GOTO. The guiding rate needs to be set at 1X in both places or the guiding is all over the place. Kevin

Hmm I wonder if there is something wrong with my setup. I use a 250 mm fl guide scope with an ASI 1290 cam as guidecam
I've had very unpredictable guiding performance with AsiAir Pro until the latest version with multi star guiding.
I haven't had too many chances to test it out but the guiding was very good when I did. Better then the best with the previous version. And seemingly more stable. I just started it up and it worked. No tweaking.
I have a strange problem. I am using a c925 on a AP 1600 . I can run it without guiding for about 30 s with fairly round stars. The moment i try to guide with the phd on the asiair pro, it is all over the place. Unpredictable spikes in both axes. Has anyone encountered this problem? I will try with phd proper the next time.
