Re: Apparent loss of tracking after dither command

It’s hard to say what happened with such a superficial description. Did PHD2 start complaining about the loss of lock on the guide star? It would have been flashing its UI and displaying a warning to that effect. Did prior dither operations succeed? Usually one dithers every 1 to 5, at most, exposures so there should have been a few dithers happening somewhere in between those prior shots... dithers that I presume went off without a hitch?
The key and basic thing to know here is whether PHD2 lost its guide star or not, an event that it gripes loudly about.
