This morning I woke up to a pier crash. When I first looked at SGP the autofocus dialogue was up and 2 data points had completed. This was at 23:55:17. From then until 7:42 there are repeated messages in the log “No messages received from PHD2 for 1 minute. checking socket with status” LOG FILE
This caused SGP to go into a state where recovery didn’t happen but kept waiting for some sort of response from PHD2 which is paused during autofocus, and the mount kept tracking into the pier because the pier flip never happened.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that when I canceled the incomplete AF run Recovery popped up immediately.
