I’m having the hardest time getting SGP working for me and not freezing up somewhere along the way. First freeze up and crash problem was because I had mirror lock settle set at 1 but mirror lock was disabled in my T4i. It took me a while to figure out what was the problem because I thought I had mirror lock enabled in my camera since I use mirror lock in BYEOS, but apparently BYEOS doesn’t need the camera to have that setting enabled to use that feature.
SGP 184.108.40.206 freezes on me in 2 different spots- After plate solving when SGP says “Resuming the auto guider” (happens 90% of the time), and also during auto focus (happens more than half of the time). When SGP freezes when trying to resume guiding, PHD2.5.0dev7 remains guiding the whole time. When SGP freezes during an auto focus run, it happens after at least 2 exposures were made and plotted on the graph.
My mount is an iOptron CEM60 and it has a hub on the DEC saddle for wire management, and I have my ASI120MC guide cam’s USB cable plugged into it along with my T4i, and I have my MoonLite focuser cable plugged into the 6P6C port on the hub. I’ve been warned that the hub could be the issue but I can use this same setup with BYEOS and PHD2. Seems like if the hub isn’t an issue with those other programs, then it wouldn’t be an issue with SGP, I don’t know.
I will attach a log but I don’t know which issue will be the culprit because I’m picking at random since every time I’ve used SGP it ended in a freezing. And because of that I can tell you to start at the bottom and work your way up until you’ve seen enough (you shouldn’t have to look far).
