But I agree with the previous poster, I don't think Dithering in 1-axis guiding is going to be very effective.
It all began when I found those black patches on my images. Besides those patches walking noise was visible (tried to point it with those arrows)
Let me add more Infos into this.
This is the stack with STF from the internal guider with the above settings and 10px. (1 day before this thread)
+1 for the
TP-LINK UH700 7-PORT USB 3.0 HUB

No, at least not in purpose. I'll check it.
But if it is ON, the captures should stop correct? My captures are working properly.
Certainly, I'll search to activate the debug logs.
1. After a lot of tries and settings changes, I've pressed reset to default (guide-->option tab) and after a while, RMS went to 1-1.5.
2. SkyGuiderPro, so only RA
3. I've read about it and I have to try it.
4. My captures are great (for my taste), but I am trying to combat the walking noise, that's why I need it.
The thing is that I have also Stellarmate OS and with exactly the same settings dithering is working fine even with the max 10px. So I'm trying to understand why is it different.
So, I believe I've reached my limits. I can't make dithering to work. I always get this back:
Hello! I need also a powered hub for my setup but it needs to be powered directly from a power bank (TalentCell 12V/6000mAh). I saw this one

Do you think that will be possible?

I was pretty sure that I've seen that somewhere. Here you are
Just an update, I've managed to make the internal guider to work, thanks to all your tips!
So to sum up, key points if you want to guide with a mount just like SkyGuider Pro (only in RA):
Options button (lower right corner)
- Uncheck the Two Axis option
- Algorithm = SEP Multistar
On the Main Guide screen,
-Both Guider & Via options, should be the Guide camera.
With those settings and all the other to default, I was able to start guiding into 2-3 minutes.

Ok I see... I've started with PHD2 - just with default settings - and everything worked great. Unfortunately, I am facing intermittent crashes in Ekos and through the logs, I suspect errors from guiding, so I thought I could give a try with the internal guide.
Yes Sky Guider Pro does not have GoTo capabilities but works fine at least for RA.
So if I understand correctly, I should change the " Via: iOptron Sky Guider Pro" to "Via: Telescope Simulator"?
