PHD2 Dithering update

Question

Hello,

I have been reading up on dithering with BYEOS and PHD2. There is a support thread over at PHD2 that mentions that BYEOS (or Nikon) uses the "old" method of communicating with PHD2 by using ports.  Are there plans to update to the "new" method of communication?  I haven't read up on it completely, but it seems there is more data exposed to BYEOS that could be useful in helping the settle and calm down times.

Link to PHD2 thread. https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!searchin/open-phd-guiding/dithering|sort:relevance/open-phd-guiding/twlz5FZbmw8/q2O-AFZAEQAJ

 

Thanks,

Keith

Both the old and new PHD API's use TCP sockets. The new method/protocol exposes more information, but I am not sure switching over to the new protocol would result in greatly improved dithering. The issue in the linked thread was that the configured settling parameter was set too small. Incorrect setting of the settling and calm down values in the new protocol can also slow dithering down.

No plans yet, but it not out of the realm of possibilities.  This is the enemy here :(

Out of curiosity, what is the enemy here?  Time, the realm of possibilities, PHD, dithering, ...

:)

Thanks again,

Keith
