After having slowly advanced my astrophotography hobby over the past few years, I am now trying to really tighten up some weak areas. One of those, is guiding. Specifically, guiding in my exact backyard.
The attached photo is standing next to my pier facing directly north. Polaris is right between the 3rd and 4th power line (from the bottom). I'm not worried about these lines in images since stacking completely eliminates them. However, guiding can be a pain. Once the guide star hides behind a power line, PHD2 throws a hissy fit. Once the star comes back out (maybe 30-60 seconds later), I simply select the star again and continue imaging. Typically, only one light frame is lost, maybe two depending on when guiding went haywire. I've even preemptively selected a different star before my ideal star went into hiding but don't want to manually do that over the course of an imaging session.
I would like to start leaving my imaging sessions running for longer periods of time without any baby sitting. Is there anything I can do inside PHD2 to tell it "you're going to lose the star and that's okay--it'll be back soon so just wait a minute and pick up where you left off when it returns?"
