I am trying to get SGPro working with PHD and frankly is seen excessively complicated or unclear. This is the process I am following:
(1) I run SGPro and connect up the camera, mount etc.
(2) I run PHD2
(3) In SGPro I start a sequence.
I am using an SBIG STX camera with remote Guide Head. When connecting equipment I have the SGI Guider (ASCOM) selected in PHD along with the AP1600GTO mount.
What is not at all clear is whether I select the guide star and start tracking in PHD (which I am quite familiar with) before I start a sequence, or I Start a sequence first.
Worse. I can only generate one frame before I keep getting a message in PHD: “Camera timeout during capture. The camera has been disconnected. Please resolve the problem and re-connect the camera”. The whole rest of the sequence aborts also. It seems to do this while the camera is downloading.
How can I just setup a sequence and forget about it? Getting very frustrated as PHD is easy to setup but in synch with SGPro I find it difficult to find a simple dummy explanation in one place. (At least in a way that is visible to me)
