Dither Settle time was created by tkottary

Please see attached screenshot , settle time for dither is set as 20s however Ekos message bar shows it under 10s. Also i am curious to know why the RA & DEC dithers more than 8 px when dither scale in Phd2 is set as 1 and dither is set to 7px in Ekos.

20 seconds may be too long for PHD2. It appears to error while waiting.
- "PHD2: Settling failed (timed-out waiting for guider to settle)."
- "PHD2: There was a dithering error, but continue guiding."
- "Dither complete. Resuming capture in 5 seconds..."
- "Dithering completed successfully."
- "Guiding resumed."

Right, but it should take 20s to settle right as per my settings. It 's doing 10s. I have DEC backlash on cem25p which is why dither never settles on DEC
