Yes, this is odd.
Might have something to do with wifi.
I use AZ-GTi in Station Mode so that it connects to RPI hotspot automatically.
Sometimes AZ disables the Station Mode for no apparent reason.
I'll check tomorrow.

Jasem,
I double-checked - the mount cannot connect to SM 1.4.2 hot-spot.
I tried to connect to the hot-spot with my phone and instead of an immediate connection,
I was presented with connectivitycheck.gstatic.com login window.
I suspect that is the reason for the mount not being able to connect to SM.

Here's the relevant part of the log:

Thanks, I didn't have time at all to test it yesterday.. hopefully I'll have sometime today. It's already on my TODO list.

I was experiencing the disconnections so I have just decided to make the eqdir cables: one fully wired (which has been briefly tested inside home, although no tracking or guiding tests yet), another with a bluetooth ttl interface (not tested).

You can find a lot of documents, including how to make the cables, here:
