I experienced a bizarre behavior last night during a sequence. It was mid run, and my gear centered the target as expected. I wasn’t happy with the exact positioning of the target, so I paused the sequence and clicked “Center Here” on the image. The Center Here process ran perfectly, and it put the image right where I wanted it. I then restarted the sequence, and found out after the next subexposure that it had returned to the previous position. The sequence did not run any type of centering action after I restarted it, and I manually restarted PHD2 so that everything was in place.
I tried a couple more times, and the centering action worked perfectly to center the image where I clicked, but again returned to the previous position before restarting. I finally resorted to saving one of the plate solve frames with the image in my desired position, and inputting it as the target coordinates in the sequence. That worked, but the Center Here function did not.
There were never any errors, and it always centered to within 7 pixels of where I wanted. It just magically returned to the original position when I restarted the sequence. I even tried to just take short exposures with the frame and focus function to see if it stayed in place, but it had already returned to the previous position.
I’m using TheSkyX, and the problem started occurring right around 3:21am.

Thanks for any advice.
