PHD2/telescope simulator: The RA and DEC rates vary by an unexpected amount #37504
Dear all,

I am trying to simulate a guiding session with openPHD2 and the indi telescope simulator.
However, it looks like I am experiencing problem while running the calibration step, see included images:



PHD2 mention that RA and DEC rate are not normal, is it normal to experience such problems ?

Thank you in advance for your help

News: I got a very accurate answer on openphdguiding forums:

Might be a good candidate for the wishlist channel.
