Hello! I hope I'm in the right place to ask this question. I'm running in to a problem wherein Ekos/INDI guiding calibration fails after a meridian flip. I am using the internal guide module. Guiding works well until the flip, so I think my setup is basically working, but following a flip I invariably get failures. It seems like the guide module gets part-way through the calibration procedure, loses the guide star, and gives up entirely. For guiding I am using an ASI290MM Mini via an OAG with 2x2 binning, a square size of 64 and a pulse length of 1000. Possibly I have been very unlucky with clouds on every occasion, but this doesn't seem likely.
I was wondering whether there is any way within Ekos settings to get the guider to retry a failed calibration attempt. The object I'm currently imaging requires a flip about half-way through the night, so the failure of guiding invariably costs me half of my imaging time. Is the best workaround to configure only a single target in the Targets module, and enable the option which restarts the whole job after every failure?
I attach some logs from the most recent occurrence. The post-flip alignment completes successfully at 2021-04-15T01:54:01.235, and guider calibration starts. At 2021-04-15T01:55:30.650 guiding fails and the scope sits idle for the rest of the night. Any advice would be appreciated.
