Calibrating the Pyxis LE rotator using The Sky X (TSX) and the guider FOVI

When the Pyxis LE was fitted, the weather was bad so it was not possible for Ian and Nik to calibrate it from Nerpio. I did this remotely from home a couple of days later. I found there was an offset of ~13 degs between the true sky PA and the Pyxis readout. This was corrected for in the Pxyis LE control panel using the 'Change' button.

Notice the autoguider image and the stars in TSX FOV Indicator guide box are the same? The real stars are inverted due to the telescope optics. The scope was centred on Deneb and the PA of the rotator set to ~339 degrees to acquire that guide field.
