Thanks, Jasem . That will be the issue. There where no stars in the view just the street outside. I guess I was expecting to see a screen with the looping images and the option to select a guide star. But if it is automatically looking for a star I can understand why it would fail. I've got a lot to learn. Keep up the good work.

I'm very new to Stellarmate, I have been playing around with it for a day now via the android app and I'm looking forward to taking it out. I am trying to test my Orion Starshoot autoguider on it. I have been able to use it as the main CCD in a test and loop some exposures out of the window, so I know the camera is working with the unit, but when I set it to the guider I get "Calibration failed with errors" and the Guide screen stays black. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong here. Can someone explain what the calibration process is and why it would fail?
