How do you connect your HEQ5 to your Mac? Via the handcontroller or via an EQDir cable? Also, do you have an ST4 cable between your guide cam and the mount or will you guide without that?

On Camera means guide signals are sent via the ST4 port, On The Camera. If that is your intent, you need an ST4 cable from the guide camera to the guide port. Otherwise select the EQMod mount driver for pulse guiding.
