I have a MetaGuide user who would like to use SGP for imaging and things are working well with regard to guiding, dithering, and autofocus, but there is a small issue with Meridian Flip.
I wrote MetaGuide so it would be easy for apps like SGP to do meridian flips by making sure I handled all the user setup issues within MG. So - you can point the scope anywhere in the sky and enable guiding - and it will be calibrated regardless of meridian, oag, guidescope - whatever. The user needs to set things up properly in MG for it to work - but once it is set up SGP doesn’t need to worry about it.
When SGP does a meridian flip it apparently asks the guide software to flip the calibration data - but MG will do all the right things by itself once it detects a meridian flip.
So can you please disable that check for calibration flip when guiding with MG and a merid flip happens?
Here is a section from the user’s log:
