DEC seems to be crashing now. Cant see any corrections showing on PHD2 graph for DEC

Perhaps because its drifting North and you have North only corrections enabled. Try swapping The North to South.

I reckon that's pretty good guiding - I'd be happy with that.  The odd small spike won't affect the image, and occasional spikes seem to be fact of autoguiding life. Mine, anyway.

BTW.  Oscar the Grouch - DON'T buy a Synguider instead of a PHD setup.  I've had one - ten times more difficult to get to work than PHD2. OK only if you really don't want to use a laptop.
