Happy to look at a debug log. Other than that, all I can say is that shouldn't happen.

Given that this is a semi-permanent installation I don't need to PA often, but whenever I feel like doing a PA again, I will gladly generate debug logs.

I also made sure that I gave enough time (I hope) between alt-az mount motion before relying on the plate solve results but then. that may not have been enough.

Thanks again.

I don't think this alt-az movement thing is a big deal. It just means one plate solve may fail due to scope movement, but the next plate-solve comes automatically soon after and will likely succeed.

This is a pretty good feature. I used it last night.
Plate solving went off into the weeds a few times, but that may have been due to some high-altitude clouds coming in (and the one time my scope was pointed at a tree!).
