My autoguider port seems to have a problem. How do I check it?

Try to issue a command to move your mount from your autoguider program or autoguider hand control (not to be confused with the scope’s NexStar hand control).

The movement is very small, so you will need to look at your scope's hand control rather than at the mount itself.

To see the RA–DEC values and changes made, press Menu > Utilities > Get Axis Positions.

If these positions change in the right direction and amount, then your autoguider port is not the source of any autoguiding tracking problem.
