Re: Spurious guider move command?

The new Lodestar X2 is much nicer.  It’s got a regular RJ-11/12 modular connector.  You can now make your own cables – and they don’t have this connection problem the old ones had.

Yes, the Lodestar cable is super sensitive. I looped mine up and back, then tied it with a tiewrap to the Lodestar body before descending down to the PC. Even then it is touchy, if you yank on it even slightly it loses contact.

I had something similar a while ago. Nice guiding for a few minutes, then a sudden blip. Replacing the usb cable from the lodestar fixed the problem.
