>>>If I look at this output from PHD2 Guiding Assistant, are you saying that my P-P Arc Seconds is the Declination, Peak of 0.73 px (1.44 arc sec)?
Yes, but p-p can be (and probably is) misleading. if you have a wind gust, bump the mount, cable snag, etc. it could end up artificially increasing p-p when in fact it's not meaningful at all.
>>>If yes, how does this help me determine what MinMo I should use as a starting point? I took this screen shot before I hit the finish button, but it came back and recomended a RA MinMo = 0.20 and a DEC MinMo = 0.30.
It doesn't really. you shouldn't be trying to figure out the min move, that's the whole point of the guiding assistant: to establish min move values (it does other stuff but this is its main purpose).
i'll have to go back and talk with Bruce (author of PHD) on exactly how he calculates the min moves, but i suspect it's the high frequency RMS values he looks at (look at your screen in upper right)
