Minimum Move (MnMo) in Guide Settings

Post by W7AY » Thu Jul 11, 2019 7:23 am

ZWO: is it possible to add the Minimum Move (MnMo) parameter of PHD2 to the ASIAIR Guide Settings window?

For mounts with very slow periodic error, such as the Avalon M-zero, and also strain wave gear mounts like the RainbowAstro and Hobym mounts, better guiding can be obtained by using a smaller MnMo value than the default value (0.15 pixel) that is used by PHD2.

When "seeing" is very poor, a larger MnMo than the default is also useful to prevent chasing "seeing."

I would second that. I think not having access to MnMo for both RA and Dec makes it much more difficult to adjust to conditions.

Would love to have this feature in ASIAir which is quickly becoming one of my favorite AP tools.
