A lot has happened with my guiding... all good. I did mess with the gain which makes SEP multistar rock solid. Thanks for that advice. Long story short, the rest of the story involves a bad Mac OS Big Sur install which lead to a complete wipe of my laptop, a bad RPi update to my RPi4 with Stellarmate OS which also lead to a complete wipe and reinstall. So far, I'd say it was worth it. Some good seeing here in the panhandle of Florida is helping as well. Results attached.
