Re: Guiding Problems with PHD2 and OnStep

Phd2 has several tools to check the mount.
Usually movements that are too short or long are because the pulse runs into mechanical looseness.  A loose movement is called backlash by astronomy folks.  Imagine the following.  A declination that has slop in it.  The first movement may tumble it forward.  Or lose it if backward.   

Try the full phd2 test including the 2 minute backlash test.  It tells a lot.
