What does this drift graph say about my guiding

Post by SC_Astro »

What does this drift graph say about my guiding or alignment ? Using Sharpcap 3.2 Pro, PHD2 with multi-star guiding (Zwo 60mm guide scope with zwo asi120mm). Exposure: 47 subs at 45 sec each. Thanks !

Hi,

It looks like it is drifting continuously, which is odd considering you have guiding running in PHD. Is PHD actually doing any guiding? What does the PHD guide trace look like?
