Tried with auto star on and off. Here are my settings screens for the simulator. It is still hanging.

and the scope settings


One other thing just occurred to me. I am having this issue on both machines I have tried it on, but they are both Fedora. I wonder if something could be wrong with the build?

How can devices you have in the "Via"? I has a problem similar to this that I fixed in GIT (but not yet published in PPA).

EDIT: Ok I triggered KStars PPA build, see if that resolves this issue for you.

Upgraded via PPA moments ago; Guiding Calibration and Auto Guide works fine. I also notice the Drift Graphics, Drift Plot and RMS fields are now dynamic which wasn't the case earlier.

Are you saying kcobby that you had the Drift Plot on your screen before your last update, but you couldn't zoom in and out on it? That is strange I both added it and made it zoomable in the same patch!

No rlancaste. I'm saying the Drift Graphic was a flat line, the Drift Plot showed no motion at all (didn't try to zoom previously) and the RMS fields were xxx out. All works super fine now.

Yes, so it seems the simulator was not a valid test. That should have been the telescope simulator. With my real equipment, it is set to EQmod mount.

With Fedora, I use the lupinix packages, so will have to wait for him to pick up the change or compile from source. To stay consistent though, I should wait for the package as it would be one less variable. Thanks for looking into this everyone.

Tonight, the clouds finally parted, and I was able to set up and try to gather some data. The internal guiding was driving crazy. I had gotten it to work on a laptop, but still not on my main desktop where I do most of my astro work. I think I finally have found a correlation between having the check box selected for dithering when not guiding, and the guiding not calibrating.

My assumption was that if I check this box I would get dithering when I did not have guiding set up. This would be great for shorter exposures. I also figured that if guiding was set up or was being set up, this check box wouldn't do anything. I think I was just using it wrong, or have uncovered a bug. Either way, when I uncheck the box, the guide does the multiple captures and drifting exactly how it used to.

Hope this helps somebody else.
