    Default Guiding..almost

    Hi Bob,

    Thanks again for your previous help on this matter. We're very close, but something still isn't quite right. Here's what we tried last night (logs attached). As a reminder, this is a paramount with a RC rotator, apogee camera with an off-axis guide camera. Guiding via relays.

    With scope in the East, did a single-image with PA at 0, stopped the exposure, and then re-calibrated MaxIM, just to confirm that the guider angle is in fact 178 (per the help file). Made sure ACP had this value in its settings. Tested a guided exposure in MaxIM, worked fine.

    Then told ACP to take a single image of the same object. guiding worked great, and the image came out just fine.

    Then told ACP to take a single image of an object in the West with a different PA. Guiding went quickly off-chip.

    Attached the two ACP logs from the run along with the tracking log from MaxIM and the ACP config.

    Any ideas? I feel like we've almost got it!

    Thanks much,
