Hello Friends
Good morning

I set up the Aply600 spectroscope + ZWO120mm guide cam. May I expect help to fix slit guiding parameters using PRiSM.
Instrument and slit view can be seen in image attached.
Note: updated ZWO drivers as old drivers had issue with PRISM (may be some other problem).
PRiSM behaved well with new drivers. These are @ ZWO website:
ZWO ASI Cameras driver Setup V3.0.0.3
ASICamera ASCOM Setup V1.0.3.15

What do you except ? Support on the fact that the slit lies horizontaly ? Could you please be more accurate ?

I am using Prism with a LhiresIII (another spectroscope from Shelyak) but I also have an Alpy (although last time I used it I wasnt using Prism...)
I am also happy to help, but, as Cyril said, it might help us if you can give a specific question...
I assume you have been through all the Alpy tutorials available online (I think Shelyak do quite a few)?

Prism has slit-guiding (under advanced tab) which I use for my Lhires but you dont have to use this at first if you are more familar with normal guiding. It will work.
