Dithering and PHD2, I'm not sure...

Hello,
I use an asi224mc for the guiding, connected directly to my asi1600mc (my main camera).
With Stellarmate, I use PHD2 to guiding. I've selected Indi camera and Indi mount.
And finally, I've checked that the dithering was active int the option.

And effectively, I see the text "dithering" on the panel "setup". I think all was fine.


But I don't see the message on the graph in PHD2.
So, is the dithering active ?

Thank you

Sometimes I see this behavior as well. PHD2 seems to “forget” to dither. If there it’s no “dither“ on the graph, there is actually no dither shift between the images.

What I do then is go to PHD2 settings (“brain”), switch dither and on again and switch guiding off and immediately on again. After that, it dithers as it should.

Regards, Bernd

Edit: Just to be precise, in my case I don't see the word "Dithering" between captures in the Ekos summary tab when PHD2 is not dithering. But you do...

Hello @bernd
Ok, thank you for your information. So, I'll try to switch on/off the dither of PH2 this evening, good idea !
But, where to click ? I've only a possibility to switch the mode of dither.

Thank you,
Frank
