I know. But that happens sometime. I have had time where I have been at it for an hour nothing works! Then change nothing and all of a sudden it all clicks!

I have had several fails with ASTAP but thought it may have been clouds? I will have a look at others as would like to have a reliable working setup.

Astap works just fine. I just prefer plate solver. They all work though. Just depends on speed for your setup. I find astap fails.more often. But have seen other who love astap.

Thank you I was watching as you replied. I am assuming that PHD2 keeps the speed correct with the auto star selection? I have been using ASTAP plate solver would you recommend a different one? Thanks

Hi I am new to this, had my EXOS 2 PMC8 for a couple of months now and everything seems to be working fine apart from I cannot take images for longer than 60 seconds without getting trails. 

I have been using Sharpcap 2 with a Altair GPCAM2 290C for polar aligning attached to Skywatcher Evostar Ed80, I get exelent according to sharpcap. 

I then slew to an object in Stellarium but am always off? 

I amusing POTH hub and connected to laptop via serial port.

I will be trying N. I. N. A. soon to see if there is a difference. 

Any help or suggestion welcome. Thanks

If your using an exos 2. You may get errors in the guiding. Check the cables and balance. Its quite hard to balance in dec. In fact really hard! The cables make it even harder. Play with the cables and see when it's happy. Take pics for future ref.

Cheers
