This has happened in several sessions now, and I’ve been manually re-starting PHD2 to work around it. (But really, between weather and imaging cam hardware problems, there’s hasn’t been much imaging the last six weeks anyway.) After a slew, PHD2 will have one or more good guide stars in the field. SGP will try to resume guiding, and then the image displayed by PHD2 will go back and forth between a normal image showing the guide stars and an image that looks like some kind of noise pattern - mostly solid white, but with a few vertical lines. SGP eventually gives up and goes into recovery mode. SGP 2.3.15, PHD2.4.1. The SGP log is here:
though I don’t see anything unusual. The problem begins around 7:02:44. PHD2 works fine when I start it manually. It’s only getting SGP to resume it that is causing trouble. I can’t say for sure whether I saw this when I tested 2.4 - I didn’t have much luck auto-focusing my SCT the night I tried it, so had to move back to 2.3. Then I started having camera problems anyway, and have had little imaging since.
Thanks for any help. I know you guys are snowed under. Well, figuratively - you’re in Texas after all, not the northeast!
