I’ve been using SGP for a couple years now and just completed my automated observatory. I’ve been having some trouble getting to that 100% automation mark because I have the following issue:
My mount will not do a meridian flip through SGP unless I manually do a model (east and west) through the hand controller. So every time I image I have to go out the observatory and manually go through the hand controller to make the model. I don’t actually look through the telescope, but I still have to set it up. If I don’t make this model SGP will fail to perform a meridian flip and error out.
In addition, if I have already made a model through Gemini 2 and parked the telescope previously through SGP and then unpark, SGP fails to perform a meridian flip with the telescope. I have to make a new model again.
Any help is greatly appreciated - I’m sure I’m making some simple mistake here.
