Divide and conquer. Always my favorite troubleshooting approach!

If you have a CP4 or a CP3 with a later firmware chip, you should be able to download the PEM data from the CP3/4 using PEMpro and then simply look at it's graph for any spurious data points.

If you are trying to chase down a problem and think it might be the mount, the best way to approach it is to disconnect every program from the mount and run it without any external inputs. That means no guider connections of any kind. Bring up your guider program and just watch the guidestar motion and take a screen shot.

Hi Rolando, 
I have been getting similar spikes and was about to re-grease. But this sounds intriguing. Can I ask which log Andrew spotted this move in? I'd like to double check in my case and see if it could be the same issue before chasing mechanical things.
Best regards,
Paul
