Finding a guide star (with PHD2) fails


I am setting up a new laptop for imaging. Everything seems to work - except finding a guide star after a recenter.

After a meridian flip or centering on a new target, PHD2 tries 3 times, but always seems to look in the same subframe that it had from before. Doesn’t find a guide star and gives up.

The PHD2 and SGPro log files are here:

At 11:11pm you can see one of the failures.

Any help is appreciated!


You need to update SGP and PHD2 to the latest versions. A new command was added in PHD2 and SGP has been changed to call that command. It specifically addresses the issue you’re seeing.
