I have been away for a couple of months and just got back to see a rare clear sky. I downloaded the latest versions of SGP (18.104.22.168) and PHD2 (2.5.0 pre3). However, it seems that when I run PHD2 automatically via SGP it fails just as it finishes setting up. It says the scope is slewing so it turned off. It also fails - for the same reason - when I do a meridian flip. I was able to get around this problem by starting the guider manually. When I turned on “auto restore calibration” in PHD2 the meridian flip also worked.
I have a habit of seeing patters that don’t exist. Although the above doesn’t make sense, I tried it both ways a few times. Not enough to really confirm that it isn’t a random problem. Thanks for any help or advice.
I’m using EQMOD (V1.271) , with a Kwiq guider (QHY5), an HEQ5 with a D5100.
Here are the logs SGP and PHD2
It fails in SGP at 9:30:00, 9:48:59, 10:24:26 and is finally working at 10:24:44 (all pm). The succesfull flip with "auto restore…turned on is 1:28 am
