Hello all,

I need some advice on a guiding issue that is driving me crazy.

Two days ago I went out and was able to guide quite ok. I had to redo the calibration 2 or 3 times because it would fail with the message "cannot reach guidestar after 21 iteration possible mount or backslash problem" but in the end, it started guiding

Now last night, same gear, same location, same target ... I spend 3 hours doing calibration, it was driving me nuts, I changed settings like guiding pulse, size of the box to 64, swap DEC RA combination of all of this and it kept failling and then ... Bam ! it started guiding to my great relief. I enabled the logs hoping someone could look at these and maybe find some explanation.

I see that I am not the first one to post about this issue. Has anyone come up with a definitive answer on what should be done to correct this ?
