Paper Abstract

This paper outlines the design of an auto guiding system and points out the potential pitfalls that often are not observed. Rather than describing the mathematics in detail, the fundamental principles are discussed at a more basic level, leaving the interested reader to explore the details in the mathematical textbooks himself. The diagrams in this paper all made through simulations rather than mathematical calculations.
