A quick note about ZWO AM5 guiding

August 10, 2022

I have been imaging the night sky for eight years with five different EQ mounts, most of it from my backyard in New Hampshire, and I rarely experience guiding this precise. I have been out imaging three nights with the AM5 so far, with reasonably clear skies and average seeing—nothing spectacular. These are some of the lowest total RMS error numbers I have seen from my Bortle 4 to 5 backyard. We're going through a stretch of clouds and rain, but hoping for better weather toward the end of the week. I'll post more guiding results along with some PHD2 logs.
