The Sky X Pro CAO, and star shoot auto guider, any one guiding with this set up?

Hi guys.

Just recently bought an SSAG from the ice trades as I wanted to take advantage of the closed loop slew that TSX CAO (The Sky X Pro, Camera add on). Meaning that TSX will slew to a target take an image, plate solve it, then slew again to centre the target on the chip.

I'll be buggered if I can get relays to work in TSX. I can get the guider to work perfectly well with PHD but just can't get it work with TSX CAO.

Is there a secret handshake I need to know about? I so, hook me up because I'm stumped.

Thanks

I suppose if I want some help, some details may be in order. Lol sorry.

I have my calibration set to 60 secs, and found that I had to introduce a delay between exposure or the calibration fails about two seconds after I commence with the calibration process.
With the exposure delay introduced it seems calibrate in x because I only get an error after it calibrates in the Y axis. The error I get is "motion to small during -y move. Increase calibration steps"

So what happens if you increase the calibration steps?

Same thing, I increased them all the way out to 200 secs, same result. Guiding works perfectly with PHD so the gear is functioning as it should.

I'll post on the sky x forum today and see if anyone there can shed some light.

Cheers
