Since overcoming my trevails with connecting to my LXD75, I've had the opportunity to dork around with guiding using Envisage and the DSI. Problem is, it doesn't seem to stay on target.

I connect to the scope fine, i pick some star in the frame with no neighbors, etc etc. I run a cal and wait for the yellow circle cross hairs to appear. (I had to invert N/S on the handset to get the cal to converge).

So far so good.

Then for an experiment, I leave the imager on one second frames, leave the star I calibrated on as the guide target, and switch over to the imaging tab to do a photo run. When I tell Envisage to star imaging, it does so, and everything looks OK until a few seconds in when the crosshairs leave the star and go elsewhere...in spite of the star not actually drifting yet.

What am I doing wrong?
