Slewing to the ground at random times

Ekos 1.6.1 . Az Gti eqmod. I'm working on a panorama of the Cygnus complex, and I have noticed two nights that at random times my mount slews to point down to the ground. Of course capture is interrupted, guiding interrupted. I have to power cycle the mount, move it by hand to Park position and close and start Kstars in order to recover a working state. Otherwise it does not plate solve and does not slew.
Set 1 -> AZ GTi, redcat51+Canon 6D, guide: 30mm+ZWO ASI 120MM.
Set 2 -> Star Adventurer, lenses+Canon 6D
Set 3 -> NEQ6, LX90-8' OTA/MN150 + 450D peltier, guide: 50mm+QHY5.

Ok, more testing. It seems that every time I make a panorama in the Orion region this happens, the mount goes crazy and points to the South equatorial pole...

Find attached the panorama esl file

That doesn’t sound nice. Please post your logs for further advice.

Cheers
