I'm using the new version 1.7.0 tonight and overall having good results. My guiding is very good at 0.3-0.6 and it seems to be running smoothly. My only "fly in the ointment" is that I'm getting this error regarding dithering. I'm using PHD2 for guiding... so perhaps there's an issue with the communications. I get the same error whether I'm using the new "one pulse" option or not. Can anyone tell me what it means?

The one-pulse option doesn't apply to PHD2 (it would be ignored). In fact, I intended to grey-it-out when PHD2 was in use, but apparently that needs to be corrected.
I assume the PHD2 settling error would mean that it set a dither target position, but failed to reach that position in the time allotted.
You could try increasing the parameter "PHD2 Dither Timeout" in the Ekos guider settings, dithering section.
