I have focused the guide scope and the images look decent and star detection seems to work fine with the results. However after the calibration attempt, I get the error:
"Guide DEC: Scope cannot reach the start point after 21 iterations.\nPossible mount or backlash problems..."
Is this likely an issue with the AZ GTi? It is certainly a cheap mount and in my limited experience gotos aren't super accurate (it always seems to take a few iterations of slew to target solves). I'm still hoping this is something I can calibrate for. Any suggestions? I've attached the verbose log from the session. The first guide / calibration attempt is at 2020-02-03T20:44:28.089.
