6px dithering on the guiding scope
What guide speed do you use? Have you checked the 'Fast Recenter after Dither' option in PHD2?
I have to admit, that I am not a dithering expert. But as far as I understand is, that dithering is done entirely on the guiding image, i.e. it shifts the guiding star by 6px. This automatically translates through the focal length ratio between guiding scope and primary scope (in your case 650/240 = 2.7) and the ratio of the pixel sizes (in your case 4.3/3.75 = 1,14), i.e. in your case a 6px dithering results in 6 x 2.7 / 1.14 = 14.1 px.
I use the PHD2 native driver. The guidescope is not included in the profile for this telescope.
i don't think EKOS has no knowledge of my guidescope. I thought that the dither was calculated for the combination of imaging camera and telescope. ???
it should be marked ABORTED and not IDLE
Fixing the issue for PHD2 needs a more complex rework and thorough testing. I have it on my list, but I would expect fixing it won't within the next days.
Does this fix my case with PHD2 as well as the internal guider?
