sticky Re: Astrophotography Done with the iEXOS-100, EXOS 2, and G11 Post your Pictures and Details! Lets Show What These Mounts Can Do. #iEXOS-100 #G11 #EXOS2 #astrophotography
Newest effort. Still struggling with DEC excursions of 3-4 ArcSec every 6 minutes or so. Dither was off. Alternates north and south. So I figure DEC Backlash. A review of PHD-2 revealed that backlash compensation was disabled. Enabled backlash compensation and this seemed to fix the North/South periodic excursions. I think Jerry have mentioned this before.
I was able to catch 20 lights of IRIS Nebula (NGC-7023) and 5 of Andromeda (M31).
