My guiding is giving me some issues tonight. I have the ASiair plus. ASI120 mini in a William Optics 50/200 guide scope. My mount is the EQ6-R pro. My PA is great and my tracking is great. Everything I slew to is dead center. I'm tracking the Veil nebula at the moment. Once I slew to the object I go to guiding. I hit looping, I select a star and hit the guiding button but it doesn't calibrate. It goes directly into guiding and my graph is all over the place. Shouldn’t it take several minutes to calibrate? I’ve tried different stars. Is there something off with my settings maybe. I haven’t changed anything from my last session when my guiding was great.

It looks like you have your calibration opted as "use as in previous session" in ASIAIR. That was happening to me last time I used ASIAIR. If so, you have to uncheck that option so you can start over with new calibration.
