strange guiding issue

27 Nov, 2017 10:03
Hello all..i have a strange guiding issue whit my Neq6pro.

From the south meridian to the north meridian i have perfect guiding…so the mount goes to the west  etc.
Using PHD  and have great guiding..i can have subs from 600 or more seconds.

But if my mount goes to the east side of the southern meridian… guiding  is lost in seconds.

in ascom  its  east,points west.

its not the balance..i have  tryed all…my mount like to have the unbalance in the west.

if some have ideas..i love to hear it.

greetings John

Hi John,
Is this after the mount performs a meridian flip? Have you tried ticking the checkbox 'reverse output after meridian flip' under shared parameters on the guiding tab of the advanced setup from the 'Brain'? See below screenshot where it is unchecked as my mount does not require that. I don't know what the setting is for the NEQ6.

Also have you asked on the PHD2 Google group, which I think is a better place for this question.
Good luck, Geof

in phd go to tools, and them modify calibration, and then flip calibration. Not sure if you tried or needed to do that with the nq 6 pro. good luck! smile
