Bob,
I'm working on our ACP system (Paramount ME, QSI683 and Lodestar) and am unable to get guiding working at all. Maxim gives the error message "Could not initialize guider output...". If I press on with calibration
the routine will not complete and it's obvious that the mount is not reacting to movement instructions.

The settings I'm using in Maxim are ASCOM Direct autoguider output, and I've tried both ACP Telescope Hub and The Sky-Controlled Telescope in the ASCOM chooser. The advanced settings for the guider are set to "Do Not Change". The mount is not connected in the observatory window (I did connect it to test movement of the mount as per "Getting Started"). I'm missing something...

Thanks for your help.

Lloyd
