Good evening all… I need some good ideas as to why I can not get a Meridian Flip working.
I have been using SGPro for several months now and love it to bits. But I can not master the Meridan Flip.
I have absolutely no other issues with the software other than this. Its brilliant!
I have a Skywatcher EQ6-R Pro (which is awesome) and I am not running EQMOD (would rather not unless I have to)
I am gathering SGPro should make the magic happen without it.
I have tried the handset settings on “No Flip”, “Auto Flip” and have set up the settings in SGPro such that it should work.
When I connect SGP to the mount the standard ASCOM drivers suggest the mount will not allow flipping before 0 which I guess is fine.
When the time comes, and it should flip… and yes I have upgraded to latest 220.127.116.11
- the sequence to flip starts,
- it goes through the download image process,
- and when it comes to slewing… the sequence acts as though it slewed, gives it a big green tick but the mount does not move.
- It re-centers as though it slewed
and continues on until it hits the mount which stops the sequence.
Occasionally it “Fails to Meridan Slip” as an error and as its about 2am when it did it I have nothing to go on other than it just looks like it failed to slew.
I would really appreciate any guidance someone could give me as its the only thing mucking me around at present and I cant seem to solve it. Many thanks
