I've recently had a couple packages shipped and the tracking seems to periodically have some errors. Anyone tried guiding these out? Unfortunately, my guide camera is in the one currently being shipped to me, so I haven't been able to attempt this just yet.

Clearly your RMS is above 1.0 arcsec/pixel. You're going to need to refine you Phd2 setting to be a little more aggressive in both DEC and RA.

You might want to try out the new multi-star guiding to see if that gives any improvements.

Periodic error must not be consistent enough for unguided success.

Get rid of the guide scope! Will be much more accurate with OAG!! Try phd2 PEC training too. Something has to work.

The problem is that the delivery service you chose did not use ASCOM drivers for their trucks. I say give the job to an ASCOM driver, as they have to meet certain standards.

You want to order the same product from several vendors to "average" the shipping time.
