I’ve installed the new iOptron ASCOM driver (v3.2) which now also shows pier side on the interface itself. So far it seems correct just from some of the slews I’ve done.
I have the newest beta of SGP installed (beta 5).
Because it is cloudy tonight I can’t do any outdoor testing so I just set up a simple sequence with only a camera and the mount. I turned off the plate solver, focus, centering, etc… I picked a target nearing meridian and had it start imaging. Auto flip was to start at 1 degree past. Well… It didn’t happen. I picked another target and did it again, this time with flip set to happen at meridian. No go.
I restarted everything and set it again. This time I noticed what I think is the problem. As I am setting up the target, the telescope control window of SGP is giving me the time to meridian correctly. But as soon as I check the “use Auto Meridian Flip” under telescope in the control panel, the telescope control now shows N/A for time to meridian. If I uncheck the box, the correct time comes back.
I don’t know if this is still an issue with the iOptron driver or with SGP but I thought I would report it and see if anyone might know what the issue is.
