Yesterday afternoon while trouble shooting, I ran an Event/Sequence of 10 images at 60s each. I had PHD2 on, but since it was daylight there was no guiding. SGP commented about this and ask if I wanted to proceed anyway, and I gave it a yes. The event ran 9 out of the 10 images scheduled and then posted that the sequence was complete. It did leave a note that the guider had failed to settle. The second time it ran 4 of 10 before doing the same thing.
Last night I tried to capture 600s subs of M27. I started the sequence and returned an hour later for refocus. I found the sequence had failed to start and it had left the note about settling (see attachment). I made two more attempts to image but each time the process failed after about 1 minute. Before my initial start, PHD2 had been guiding for at least 10 minutes with nothing unusual on its graph.
It’s noteworthy that two nights ago I successfully captured M27 with everything in SGP being the same.
I welcome any suggestions as to the cause and fix of this problem.
