My Orion SSAG & 50mm Guide Scope Tutorial with PHD Settings

Read here:

This tutorial is for those who have bought an Orion StarShoot AutoGuider (SSAG) camera and are using it on a 50mm Guide Scope such as the Orion 50mm Mini Guide Scope. It should help you set it up with perfect focus and then configure PHD Guiding with the most optimum settings that I have found thus far and have tested to work perfectly when paired with a good polar alignment and well balanced mount.
