Several nights ago, suddenly, my local plate solve started acting erratic. The main problem is it fails for step 3, validation. I think it takes the picture, but then fails immediately, without trying to solve it. If I reboot, some sequences seems to work. And at other times, it slews to where it thinks the target is, but just waits, each step says “waiting.” I checked my plate solve settings, which seem OK. I use local Astrometry.net always. Has worked great for months. Seems to have started after I created a new sequence in the framing and mosaic tool.
Thanks for any insight. Here is part of the log (maybe al of it) when it started going oddly. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/kztsv37l463qku7/AAAnLZiEHXfJgddiVvRKT2gTa?dl=0
