Hi Peter,

For my understanding;

Is calibrationRAMinPulse the smallest RA pulse AG will sent out when guiding and calibrationDecMinPulse the smallest DEC pulse AG will sent out when guiding? Or are these properties only related to calibration?

If they relate to guiding, how does this affect AG behaviour when the calculated pulse length is smaller than the calibrationXXXMinPulse?

Regards, Johan

Hi Johan, this linit is used just during guiding, not during calibration. Peter

Hi Peter,

Tnx for your reply!

How does this attribute affect AG behaviour when the calculated pulse length is smaller than the calibrationXXXMinPulse?

Does AG just skip the puls and wait for a larger deviation? Or does it send out the MinPulse length?

It will just skip the pulse. Peter
