"...who I assume is key developer for the guiding module"
OTC, just an end-user who has worked through similar issues and is offering hands-on-works-for-me solutions.

Maybe only developers should answer questions... Dunno. I must admit to not having read the forum rules. Please accept my apologies if this is the case.

"...are you saying the interface label for image delta is incorrect and it should read seconds and not minutes..."
No: Arc-minutes is correct.
Yes: I'm suggesting, as well as a change in phraseology, a change of unit to arc-seconds would make more sense for imaging.

"set verify frames to 1 ... image delta to 0.3"
If that's good enough for your photometry, yes. A value of 1 will indeed check alignment after every frame.

"underlying issue"
Our policy for stuff like this is to change nothing in software.
Check instead, in this order, using substitutes of known performance:
-cable routing
-each cable
-change power supply
finally:
-dismantle/clean/re-grease the mount

'What does "re-set pipeline"'
Don't know, but IAC, the default value of 30 arc minutes perhaps isn't as intuitive as it could be.
Maybe a more meaningful phrase would be:
're-align if the captured image position varies more than x arc-seconds'

Good luck and HTH

Hi
No (re-)align seems to have been triggered. Try setting the 'Verify captured image position every x frames' and the corresponding 'Rest pipeline...' values.

If 1.26 doesn't work for you, the old versions are here:
github.com/indilib/indi-3rdparty/tree/master/libasi

Hit the platform you want, e.g. x64, then hit 'History'

Renaming and installation was covered here:

@JUAN
Hi
Are the symlinks set correctly? Here's a working install.
Under:
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu
we have:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 ago 11 09:45 libASICamera2.so -> libASICamera2.so.1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 ago 11 09:45 libASICamera2.so.1 -> libASICamera2.so.1.26
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3124684 ago 18 13:01 libASICamera2.so.1.26

I believe that unless 1.26 fixes the disconnect for all versions, on arm that needs to be 1.22

Hi everyone
is this arm specific perhaps?
kubuntu 22.04.1
All OK here on kubuntu 22.04.1. Latest indi and kstars from git yesterday.
Are you sure you updated the 3rd-party driver too? It's easy to overlook.
Cheers, clear skies and HTH.
Steve

Hi

Make certain that your mount is mechanically better than perfect, then...

In the Scheduler alignment:

Verify captured image every <1> frames
Reset pipeline if verified image delta excedes <whatever you need> arcminutes.

HTH,
Steve
