I have the STXL 11002 with the self guiding filter wheel which has a reducer in front of the guiding chip. The problem is that the image you get from the guide chip is mirrored to what the planetarium software shows in the guide box of the FOV indicator. It's not a problem for guider calibration and operation, but it's confusing when your trying to compare the image from the guide chip to the true portrayal that is on the planetarium stars in the guide box. I found where you can automatically orient the image from the main CCD on readout under the ADVANCE tab of the camera setup tab but no where can I find where you can select to have the image mirrored when it is displayed on the screen. I can't use this option by doing this with the second camera because the STXL has to be used with the self guided selection. Any help would be appreciatd!

See Setup tab, Camera 2 Options (when in Dual Chip mode "Camera 2" is the guide

chip). There are options to rotate and flip the images as they come from the

camera.

Thanks Doug! That worked! I was thinking since the "Setup camera" tab was grayed out, that it wouldn't do any good to even try to change any parameters on the Options tab. But you can!



Thanks again, Dan
