  1. Hello, I have no issues with disconnects or using BYE to capture light frames and using dithering with PHD/PHD2. The problem occurs when trying to capture Darks or Flats(I'd like to use BYE for Darks because of the great file naming options). Usually, my procedure when I finish capturing light frames is to use the same capture sequence for Darks(i.e. ten exposures at xx seconds, followed by ten exposures at another exposure). However, the sequence aborts after two frames and disconnects? If I shoot Flats, I manage to get several frames in, but then the whole program hangs. I do have around 16 feet of USB cable with 12 feet of that being an active USB cable. My computer is new with lots of free space, and the USB cables are connected directly to the machine with no hubs. The computer is a laptop connected directly to AC power. Additionally, I install a fully charged battery before starting the dark sequence. Oddly, the issue doesn't occur with light capture, only with darks and flats, so it doesn't seem like a cable problem? I wondered if there needs to be a delay between exposures, but since it is the same sequence as a light capture, that doesn't make sense? I apologize if the answer is here somewhere, I didn't see my particular issue mentioned. Any ideas? Thank you
