I've done so many odd things in my life that it's affecting my nightmares at night.

The odd thing is that I've never changed any of the plate solve settings, yet I've definitely changed scopes and cameras around.

There should never be a wasted night. The "Bad X Scale" error is not fatal. It will not be continuous unless the image scale is set incorrectly, nd that is something that the user needs to correct. As I posted earlier, the section in the APPM manual recommends that the Refine Image scale checkbox be enabled, which would automatically fix the image scale, provided the plate solve works. And if the plate solve does not work, then image scale should be one of the first things to check.
