How to set up Carte de Ciel (Sky Map, CdC) & PHD software for imaging & guiding – version 23/4/2020

After successfully managing to get guiding working earlier this week, I decided to write an outline of the process for (mainly) my own reference so that next time I would know what to do!

Not a perfect process – Damian made this comment:

Well done with regards to last night. I had a quick look at your screengrab on the blog. You didn’t have any calibration loaded – that’s why CAL is orange/yellow in the bottom right. The red DARK also suggests there are no darks for this connection..? Considering PHD had no data about your mount to go on, it did well!

….So still some way to go to improve it.
