    Hello, I am having an issue losing the guide start after several hours of continous use. When I look at the guider image it looks as if I am getting a Bias image after some time. It isnt completely consistent but once it starts doing this there is nothing I can do (shutting down the Camera and MaximDL does not help. I am using using MaximDL CCD version 6.07.
    Thanks!
    Chris

    Has it actually lost the guide star?

    It could be an inconsistent cause. The guide star has likely actually faded. Clouds? Have you actually witnessed it happen?

    Can you send your log files indicating the time and date where it occurred?
