I just caught something said by one of the MaxIm users over on their customer's tech support forum. I don't think he realized the significance, so I posted a separately titled thread for it.

Star Faded with Clean Guide Star (MaxIm tech support forum)

I'm interested in reports from people who see this with a strong guide star. What if you shorten the guide exposure until the star is at least a little bit noisy? Will MaxIm track it now? If so this is huge.
