After a long time(6 or 7 weeks) of only cloudy nights i could start to test my new USB-Focus and all equipment on new faster laptop. Now i get more FPS at Lifeview of EOS(when focusing), bu this time having problems in PHD guiding with same parameters as before on old laptop. I hope that it will not take again 6 weeks for next clear sky for next try! ;-)
