Maybe try checking your guiding aggressiveness and response. It seems that I had a similar issue once when the guider was trying to overcorrect.

Which guider program?

MaximDL will do a zigzag search when it loses a guide star. The result is what you show in your image. PHD may also do something similar when the guide star is lost.

Subject: [ap-gto] Bad images _Bouncing stars

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?
