Maxim DL Guiding


Recommended Posts

Hi, do people that use Maxim DL also use the included guiding software or something like PHD ??

I use PhD Ron.

Maxim guiding is OK but I found it to be a little on the finicky side. PHD seems to be a lot more forgiving. 

It also means maxim is only dealing with one camera. 

Probably not a problem with a modern fast computer but mine is getting on a bit.  Bit like you and me.  :lol:

I use Maxim DL 6.11 for goto and guiding of my iOptron 45 Pro using a lodestar (old version) with little problem, also controlling my lakeside focuser and xagyl filterwheel. My biggest problem with maxim on start up is getting it to see all the attachments. I have to load iOptron's Commander software first. I've had more problems with power cables to my SX285 mono falling out...
