Re: Bad images _Bouncing stars

I get this from time to time and it seems the guide star gets lost and you get these or worse results. It could have been at any point in the exposure that the clouds moved in temporarily or near the end. I have some from SRO that look like lightning strikes. Space lightning, yeah that’s what it is.

I need some advice I am getting bad images 80% of the time due to "bouncing" stars. It's a zig -zag pattern. It seems to occur on the East side of my AP 1600 mount. I have attached an image. Has anyone seen this pattern and any suggestions?
