    I have a Lodestar x2 as an OAG with a QSI camera. Using SX universal driver set to Guide Head.

    To date it has worked wonderfully with Maxim. Tonight I tried to calibrate for guiding with 10 seconds for both X and Y calibration times and 4 second exposures. After each exposure, it said "moving telescope" but instead of moving for 10 seconds it instantaneously took the next exposure. The image showed start trails as if it was imaging during the move. It errored out. Help!

    Would you mind sharing a bit more info about your setup, such as Windows 10 64bit, MaxIm DL Pro 6.13 ? What scope/mount? How connected ? Using ASCOM DirectGuide or Guider Relays from camera to mount?

    Sure. Windows 10 64 bit on MS Surface Book, AP 1100 mount, Televue NP127is, Maxim DL Pro v 6.13, Telescope Relays, QSI 690, Lodestar X2. Latest AP driver. This is all the same setup I've been using successfully for several months.
