SynScan Autoguide speeds??????

hello all.
Does anyone using autoguiding on the Synscan series of mounts play around with the autoguiding speed settings?

what difference is there from .125x to 1x !!???
Is there a sweet spot?
Cheers
Doug

Hi Doug,

I believe I used .75x or even 1x for PHD and it worked very well. I found what is the best speed by changing it and checking how it affected autoguiding with PHD.
Sorry cannot tell you what was exact number as I am not using Synscan controller anymore.

cheers,

Mike

Thanks Mike,
I've been playing around with the default 0.5x up 1.0x with PHD.
Looks like I was in the right ball park
Cheers
Doug
