Thank you. I should have included that I could only recover the driver by restarting the all of INDI, not just the one driver.

Has anyone with this guide camera seen this before? What can be done about it?

I encountered issues with an Orion Starshoot AutoGuider where I could not take images after an aborted capture. Aborted capture includes these scenarios: Cancelling an image, stopping a loop of exposure, stopping autoguiding.
The Starshoot Autoguider works with the QHY CCD driver. It will report [ERROR] GetQHYCCDSingleFrame error (-1) when the problem arises.
I have repeated the issue to produce the following log as logs from my night out are quite large.

It is not a must. My discussion on travel distance was to work out an estimate for limits to the maximum number of steps the driver will allow. The author was looking at 20,000 step limit, and I calculated the most I could possibly need, and was satisfied I came within it.

Image rotation shouldn't matter, but a mirrored image certainly would have issues solving.I suggest not using the diagonal or getting a different guidescope.

Definitely try it on somebody's windows pc and flash the firmware to compatibility version.

It could be dead. But I would try it on a PC, with different cables and on different ports. Plus visit the ZWO forums.

It definitely was working previously. I wonder if it is related to the patch that helped with the random disconnects. The timeframe is about right.

I just noticed your diagram indicates you connected the fan to 3.3 volts on the Pi. This is unwise. Drawing power from the GPIO pins 1 or 17 for a fan is taking power through the Pi's regulator. The fan's current draw could cause an under current condition or worse case damage the Pi. Pins 2 and 4 are 5 volt taps direct from the USB power supply. You would be better off taking power from there and stepping it down with a simple resistor voltage divider or a voltage regulator.

Occasionally I observed the Mount Model and Astrometry Slew to Target routines will not wait for the mount to complete a slew. It seems to happen more often with large corrections.
Observed with EQMod driver, ZWO ASI120MM, settle set to 2 sec, and Offline solver.

To clear the calibration data, click the trash can next to the Guide button.

That is a somewhat forgiving focal length. 2' should serve you well.

It's true. There is a noticeable delay with BT over USB with serial TTL adapter.
