I did try that a couple of days ago but I think the sky was too unstable, that made the star jump around too much and made box size too small to keep the star in place, but I'll try that next time clouds go away and post the result.

Currently doing a sequence, remotely from home, of the Cigar galaxy.
Noticed after a while that my stars are not that round anymore, despite the guiding being on.

at the start or about...

Interesting. My Luminous flats were successfully taken at 0.011 sec with basically indoor ambient light. When below that time the image generated included horizontal lines.

I did not recognize that this problem is "solved" allready since i have it almost every night.
Good suggestion to use shorter usb cable. The problem is that i just can´t...
The Cable has to be long enough for the system to work a whole night, including a meridian flip. So i use a long cable, but no hub. Its connected directly to my laptop where EKOS is running.

Appears QHY reintroduced a bug that was fixed in an earlier SDK, so I contacted them for a fix. Stay tuned.

I agree that in the past, I had no issues with the QHY5 but now it's a different story. Thinking about selling it really, will replace it with a Zwo camera. Maybe for Christmas.
Do not want to be let down in my automation due to the QHY5.

Hi!

Thanks for your suggestions. As for USB-stuff: short cables, and an industry level USB-hub, powered by 12V.

The issue us highly intermittent - I've not seen it since I posted. However, when aligning, I regularly get "solver timed out, capturing again. Cannot capture while camera is in use (or something similar), Retrying in 10 secs". THen it captures. I have no idea if that is related.... I'll try to post logs when/if it turns upp again.

Best,

Magnus

A good suggestion as the ASI1600 sensor, for one, seems to operate differently with exposures longer than .2 than it does with faster exposures. There is a graph that shows this somewhere. For this reason, I always do flats with an exposure > .2s and adjust the brightness down to make that possible.
