Tonight I went out to test my autoguiding kit ( mini 50mm + SSAG ) and everything went very nicely . I took about ten minutes to calibrate ,then it started to guide. It guided for 45 minutes ,and I could see it make corrections under the image ,numbers would appear a brief moment... The graphs looked fine to me.
My question is why it was writen Star Saturated in the lower left of the screen ??? Everything looked perfect !!!
Is that a problem ???
Thanks for helping me !

There is a star saturation value in the brain icon you can set. I think if you set it to 1 you won't get the message anymore. I'm just going be memory here.
