I am new to guiding with MaxIm and some help would be appreciated.
I am using a SBIG xcm4000 with AO8. I am keen to get the "dither" via AO feature operational. I have had variable success to date.
My conundrum is that I when using CCDSoft I can get the AO calibrated and functional without too much difficulty. When I swap to MaxIm I regularly can't get it to either locate a star and some times it locates but will not calibrate. There has been no change in position of mount or scope.
To add to the confusion some times when successfully using MaxIm and when swapping to CCDSoft that software will not comply and calibrate.
Please does anyone have a good "recipe" for setting up the AO function in MaxIm?
