ST4 autoguiding with PHD guding

Hi

I have a camera which has a ST-4 port. I connect this camera via a cable to the mount ST-4 port.

I start PHD guiding and connect to the mount via EQMOD ASCOM.

Is it possible PHD also to connect to the camera and start autoguiding via ST-4?

What camera is it? If it is a ZWO then you can guide via the camera ST-4 port provided you have the correct drivers on your PC. If ZWO then forget trying to use PHD and try Metaguide. PHD doesn't work well with high speed video cameras.

Select "on camera" for the scope connection in PHD. Job done!
