Re: Guiding Problems with PHD2 and OnStep

A good summary Otto.

I would add that versions of OnStep prior to the current release-4.24 (that is, anything earlier than version 4.24q) may have a bug where the variable guide rate guide commands (and spiral search) trip up pulse guiding.  That was patched back in March.

If you don't want to update to the latest, the solution is to be sure you set the guide rate (perhaps 0.5x) just before guiding starts.

This could really be incorrectly set backlash too, the above is just a possibility.
