Guide settings

In the lastest version of the software, there isn't the RA/Dec aggressiveness parameters.
Is it right?

In ASIAIR on iOS, the aggressiveness settings are in the Guide window, just above the graph. I have not noticed any change on ASIAIR 1.4.1.

You need to turn on the guide graph, of course.

Thanks Chen ;)

Wow, seems you are on the very old version. They have been moved to the top of the guiding graph.

Okay, so please tap the Graph icon then you will get the RA/DEC Aggr settings.

These are my guide-screens setting.

The first one from the main screen, the second one from graph-icon screen.
So, why there aren't those parameters? :?:
Thanks

Aggressiveness settings accessed on the guide icon (not on the guide camera tab), tap the graph icon, and you'll see the guide graph. The top line of the graph has the aggressive settings - tap the RA or DEC - values to adjust these via +/-.

For my AVX mount (standard, no tweaking, old bearings) with a 81mm William Optics refractor & guide scope, with flattener, ASI071MCC - fair amount of weight.

If I'm not slewing or guiding at a altitude, find the aggressiveness settings of 65-70%, 2000ms (max guide adjustment), and using an exposure of 2 seconds provides me with an RMS of less than 1.00 (under ideal conditions). When it's windy, things don't work well, and then there's the occasional bumping of the mount.

I've recently been using the dithering - works well but don't have a recommendation yet on the best practices.

Hope this helps - will post the guide information from my next session.

What I'd like to know is how to turn on and save the guide log - did this logging get removed from the last upgrade - have files in the log file from earlier sessions but haven't see any since the latest upgrade.

Thank you so much Jim, I really appreciate your response and I remembered well about the aggressiveness parameters. Next time I'll check the guide Graph as you said to me.
Actually after the last session I haven't found any log file in the log directory, so I think you're right and maybe they've removed that option.

Hey Jim, sorry about the guiding log issue, did you on the 1.4.1 version( and iOS or Android?)? Does it happen again?
