Re: ASIAir and Vixen SX2 with Starbook one

Hi Lancer;

Thank you very much for the info. I'm still debating on the Vixen XS2. Do you like it? I have w few mounth but my only portable one is a EQ3-2 which is... not great on DEC. I can get 1.5 Arc/sec on the guide but I'm looking for something until 12. Do you think the vixen could?

Re: Optimal Auto Guiding settings For EQ6-R pro (now with guide).

HI, Thanks for the detailed process. I have the same mount but only use the ASIAir on my smaller EQ3-2. I do the same except that I would normally do a good 3 alignment.
