Tried to do an Asteroid today, which I have done in the past without issue. It reached peak altitude and then started taking the photos for the sphere. It terminated suddenly with a warning that an obstacle had been detected. Tried it again, same issue. Out over a lake, so no obstacles anywhere. I just started using red Master Airscrew Stealth props. Could the obstacle sensors possibly be seeing the blades and triggering the warning? Thanks.

Were your drone facing directly into the sun when the OD issue came up ..? If so, it's possible that the sensors perceived the bright sun as an obstacle. This issue have been seen several times from many drone models equipped with OD sensors.

Check you have set the shooting mode (camera settings) from obstacle avoidance to composition. The DJI props may have been ok in OA mode, but the new props may be affecting it - so yeah, try "composition"

The camera was facing East during the initial sequence at around 3 PM, so the sun might have been an issue during the sphere sequence.

I was aware that Obstacle Avoidance/Composition was an issue in MasterShots, but not in the other intelligent flight modes. I'll try that along with swapping out to the factory props.

Thanks guys.
