Re: Does your Mach2 setup look like this?

I use off-axis guiding and lock my focuser, so there is no effect from cables dragging. Might be a problem if you use a separate guide scope?

Hi Roland

I don't have any ringing with my setup but I was wondering if having those cable bundles just hanging off the back of the cameras in your setup can cause guiding issues with non-AE mounts. 

I use a similar cabling arrangement as yours with my non-AE 1100 mount (see photo), but I suspected that the long, free hanging cable loops might have created some guiding issues, so I started tying them off at the mount to make a shorter loop to minimize the weight pulling on the camera.
