I'm having trouble guiding. I have two cameras and I use one as an OAG. I ran the calibration sequence and it all seemed to be going well. My first 120 second picture is trailing. I am extremely new at this so please bear with me and or direct me to previous posts if possible. Also, would it be worthwhile to try the tracking methods in PRISM?
Thank you, John.

What I mean is trying the drifting methods in PRISM to fine-tune polar alignment...

So, probably what is happening is the software is keeping the star centered properly but because I am not aligned properly the field is rotating?

Can you post some more of your guiding setup numbers and your calibration info?

I can see in the screenshot you posted that the guider requested quite a huge move from the mount, that could be as you said a poor polar alignment, or it could be something else going on with the mount.

We need more info to troubleshoot.
