Turn on the 12 volts to the ASI1600 first then connect Sharpcap to it. I normally set gain to about 300 and exposure about 2 secs and that lets me get it to focus and do a 1 star or 2 star alignment. Sharpcap just manages one camera for imaging. I normally then set the camera to 'normal' imaging settings for the intended target. 139 for unity gain, 30 secs exposure is a good starting point.

Then start PHD2 and it will find your guide camera.
