guiding stops: scheduler does not recover

I have (very ordinary) Ubuntu 18.04 with all the updates. Would that make a difference perhaps?
Is there any difference between your and my logs when guiding or capture fails?
TIA

OK. A bit more testing.
'abort autoguide on failure' unchecked

Now, both guiding and capture are resumed BUT not if the guiding fails during a dither.
Is there any chance of getting both guiding and capture restarted if guiding fails during the dither and during the exposure?
TIA,
Steve

Good news, I could reproduce it.

In the capture sequence, do you have set a delay? If I set a delay and have the "Abort Autoguide on failure" option set, then guiding starts, but capturing not. Instead, it shows "Waiting..." on the Capture tab.

Yes, I had a 2 second delay set for the run corresponding to the last log I posted.
Do you have a work around for recovery during dither?
Thanks again.

Hm, as a workaround you could set the delay to 0 and do not select the "Abort Autoguide on failure".

Alternatively, you could try to use my fix directly. If you know how to compile from sources, simply add my kstars fork as new remote and checkout the branch "scheduler_restart_guiding_dithering_errors". This works like this:
git remote add sterne-jaeger https://github.com/sterne-jaeger/kstars.git
git pull --all
git checkout scheduler_restart_guiding_dithering_errors
After this, compile kstars as usual.

Ah, ok. Is there a new fix today?
It's clear here in Spain tonight so I'm out imaging (hoping we don't lose it on a dither!).
But of course, tomorrow, I'll work out the git stuff and build your branch.
Meanwhile, could you post if the fix (if there is a new one) makes it to master?
TIA,

Good luck! Here it's raining, so no chance.

I will create a new diff and post, if it has made it into master.

OK, now the change is available on the master branch. I hope it fixes the problem now.

Hi Wolfgang
Perfect; nothing I can do will now stop the sequence
This finally makes ekos' schedule-capture-guide bulletproof!
Thanks so much for your time.
Clear skies,

LOL. OK. I'll try harder to break it...
Or maybe, 'The most reliable yet' would be less extreme?!

Hi everyone
Sorry to reopen this but I've the same problem: guide star is lost but capture continues.
I sent a request to help to this list but did not get a reply:
www.indilib.org/forum/ekos/6154-lost-gui...pture-continues.html

I also sent a copy to the PHD2 list and Andy Galasso sent this reply. Maybe this will help to fix the issue?

Any testing or whatever, just shout.
Thanks for looking and clear skies.
Cheers,
