I am having a problem on my new RC400/ME set-up: - elongated stars in RA.
When monitoring a star placed on the ST-11K chip centre with MaxIm DL V4.53
and turn on normal tracking only, the star can be measured to drift steadily
at about 1.3 pixels per minute. When I go the More Settings| Setup tab the
RA Non-sidereal rate has changed from my 0 setting each time I look to some
15.xxx figure that in inexplicable. I have tried switching off PEC, then
switching off ProTrack but the same thing keeps on happening. Did you ever
get to the bottom of your problem?
I can not think that MaxIm (any version) would be changing the Non-Sidereal
Rate in the ME setup tab. The only link to MaxIm is in the selection of
MicroGuide (Direct Guide) rather than normal relay connections. I am tempted
to try out the relay connection and see if this stops this behaviour.
I will post a copy of this onto the MaxIm group site to see if there is any
comment regarding the Microguide function when used with the Paramount ME.
