There is a new option for handling aborted jobs. The idea behind is to handle exactly those situations, where restarting guiding fails and the job aborts. There are two options: restart the job immediately or continue with the next scheduled job until all are completed or aborted. In any case, a re-alignment happens when the align option is selected.
The only way to fix that I know of is to break down the schedule into multiple ~ hour long segments in which you rerun the same sequence over and over again. That way, if there were clouds, the scheduler will realign the object and then restart again eventually. At most you would lose an hour, but not the entire night.
Alternatively, one might consider forcing a realignment whenever the guide star is lost for more than 20 seconds.

it looks like you exactly hit a very special case where guiding fails between two images while dithering. We have to investigate it further.

Thanks. How do get the scheduler to do 1 hour sessions? Say I want 50, 6 minute frames...
