Auto meridian flip timing


Finally had the chance to try out auto meridian flip and I think I’m almost there. As a test, I set the flip to execute 4 minutes after the meridian. After the meridian is reached, the time-to-flip indicator goes negative and nothing happens - maybe I didn’t let it go long enough??? Should I have let the counter run to -4 minutes?

I ran the flip manually and everything worked perfectly: plate solve, flip, plate solve, re-center. Clouds came in so that was it for the night.

Any ideas what I might have done wrong?



Yes, let it run to -4 because that means 4 minutes past the meridian which is what you set.


SGP will only initiate a flip while a sequence is running and at your specified time to flip.
