Watching how the star moves during the training is a good guide to whether the mount and settings are roughly ok. The star should move immediately in the RA direction in a series of obvious steps and then approximately back to the start position (there should be no backlash in RA if you make sure you slightly off balance the mount.) If there is backlash in Dec you will see PHD making several steps without any movement of the star (you will see a “removing backlash” message) I have lots of Dec backlash in my old eq6 but PHD still copes OK
