Guiding Errors - EQ5 and EQ6
Configuration: see picture. Objective was to see if there was any difference in guiding accuracy between the EQ5 and the EQ6 (Both Pro Synscan) when using the SG-4 guide camera and Sky Travel 80 guide scope. Noting that the EQ5 is theoretically overloaded at 11Kg vs. 9Kg recommended maximum. My original thought was the errors were due to differential flexure between the two scope/camera configurations. See Forum for more details. Performed pretty well with the MC127 with FL=1500mm.
