I was trying to image a comet last night. This was a 60 second integration. Anyone know why my scope would jump around like this? Seems like a lot of movement. :S

Andy, are you running Alt-Az?
Was the stacking based on two stars? (if so, you should stack on comet & one star)...

Could you give more infor about your setup/settings?

Is it possible for a loose connection to introduce tracking errors like this? I found a connection that had broke apart. If it was losing contact for just milliseconds could it behave like this or would it just reboot? Thanks for your thoughts!
I have repaired and await tonight to see if it helped. 8)
