Re: Suddenly stars are dashes with good guiding
Yes, any slop in the guide assembly, e.g. mounting, camera, focuser, etc., can lead to differential flexure and it can be a real pain to isolate and fix. You mentioned that it appears in the same portion of the sky, so I’d be looking for gravity kicking in at that pointing location, as that may be the straw that’s breaking the camel’s back. Good luck tracking it down.
