Re: Quite A Learning Curve

Hi Rusty,
That thinking doesn't apply now to ASCOM  guiding using PulseGuide, which SiTech uses.  Pulseguide measures the error and sends a required correction in terms of arc-sec to the controller (inside the PC), then SiTech controller moves the mount (quickly) to correct the error.  Guiding responses are now quicker than ever before.

Your old way required a timing correction pulse via the comm port to make the correction, and that was easily interfered with by other comm activity.  All that is ten year old technology that isn't a problem anymore.
