Query Re MaxIm DL Microguide

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.
