Dwight,



If all you are looking to do is to measure periodic error, then

there's not much you need to do.



Square your camera to the mount's axis, start PemPro, enter image

scale and worm period. Connect camera. Then point the scope at a

bright, mag 5-7, star near where the meridian and equator intersect,

and start acquiring data.



What camera and/or autoguider do you use? What software?



Regards,



-Paul

Thanks for the reply Paul.



I normally use a SPC900 for the web camera and PHD as the guider

software.

I often dont guide because I am using the Hyperstar system to image

and the image times are in the low tens of seconds. I just want to

make sure that I have everything working smoothly.
