Ran into an odd issue with SGP when the first target in the sequence is near the meridian.
The mount is a Celestron CGX-L
The issue is that SGP would not successfully center the target. I watched as it failed to center several times. First attempt missed by around 2,000 pixels, second attempt missed by around 2,000 pixels. Watched it fail by 2,000 pixels at least 4 times.
Went out and looked at the hand controller and it stated it had reached the RA slew limits!
The CGX-L is capable of tracking up to -20 degrees past the meridian. I had mine set for -2 past. I changed that to -10 past and poof it centered on the first try.
My question is why did SGP, or the mount, decide to start the first target on the ‘wrong’ side of the pier?
