Off-Centered - While Dithering

Vague anecdotes and screenshots are, I think, worse than useless. Worse because they waste time, encourage speculation and are frustrating for the people who would like to help.
If you expect people to spend their time going through this and working out what is going on then spending a little time to help them do so seems reasonable.
As for the DSS images it looks as if no flip was done because a flip will rotate the image by 180 degrees - well unless DSS has rotated one of the images back. If the flip failed I would still expect that an alignment would be done, but who knows. We don't.

I hear your frustration. And I don't blame you. But you might also think of the frustration of throwing out 14 images from 23. So I was a tad frustrated too.
But hey, this is a work in progress. I get it.
Also, knowing ahead of time (to turn on logs) when I don't expect failure is kinda tough too. But you know I will in the future!

I saw this on the other thread... I'll try to remember to check that off. I hear rumors... just rumors, that those sparkly things might be out tonight!

After a flip, it does re-align itself, but I don't think the issue is occurring after the flip for me... it might just be the random dithering is getting stuck in one direction.
