hello again, I took some exposures of ngc281 (pacman neb) 2 nights ago. The mount did the goto, plate solved successfully, centred etc. I noticed the mount was on the west side, so thought not long before it reaches the west limit. Sure enough after about 20 minutes it did and just stuck there. I had to park at cwd and try again. However the g11 witth gemini II ascom controller just kept reporting goto failed outside limits when I tried to go back to ngc281.
I selected ‘perform meridian flip’ from the gemini ascom control menu, but the mount just refused to goto ngc281.
I tried about 20 minutes later after a mount restart and it slewed to east side and proceeded fine.
I think I’m missing some knowledge about this goto/ meridian flip thing. Could anyone explain how this works please?
