Why is my engraving leaving a ghost image

Why is my scan creating a ghost image and how do I fix it? I am using a 100 watt laser with a awc controller.

Can you show a picture?

The two common things are the laser beam being misaligned and hitting the nozzle, causing a reflection that burns a ghost image, or a bit of slack in your machine causing the return pass of the engraving not to align with the outgoing one.

If it’s the second thing, read here: https://lightburnsoftware.github.io/NewDocs/ScanningOffsetAdjustment.html
