Hello,
After I upgraded to SM 1.6.0 my RST-135 fails to guide after the meridian flip.
It flips, plate solves and resumes the photo sequence without re-calibrating the guider and without actually starting the guider.
Tried three times with the same result.
Worked fine with SM 1.5.9
Just reporting.
Thanks!

I think this issue was reported against KStars 3.5.5... will check.

I had a bunch of strange issues with RST-135 and SM 1.6.0.
Some of them might have been related to USB cables and/or power supply under-voltage.
For now I reverted back to 1.5.9 (just because I know it works) until after the next New Moon.
Will report after that.
Thanks!

Tonight I gave RST-135 and SM 1.6.0 one more try.
Worked well.
Yes, I did have some USB cables/connection issues and I did have the mount under-powered.
Fixed that.
One more thing which caused yet another problem - after the update to 1.6.0, the RST's option "simulate the pier side" got turned ON.
It should be OFF.
Once I got all this figured out, everything started working beautifully.
Tomorrow I am going to go to a remote dark location - hopefully, the setup will cooperate.
Thanks!
