Last night while taking subs of the Tulip Nebula aroung 10:35pm when it was at the top of the meridian, SGPro stopped and suddenly there was a lot of beeping and stuck which I had to break by killing the SGPro task. I have been trying to get a automatic merdian flip without any success. Previously it used to say “ASCOM Telescope: Failed to flip because starting pier side and ending pier side are the same!”, and yesterday I see in the logs “Meridian Flip not needed, Hour Angle < Degrees Past To Flip: -17.757297”
The telescope reached the West side of the pier end and could not go further , which I believe is when the automatic meridian flip should happen but it didn’t.
Here are my settings
What am I doing wrong ?
Telescope: 1100 Edge HD + CGX mount
Driver: CPWI software & Driver … not the opensource Celestron driver.
Focal length : 1960mm
OAG Guide Camera: QHY5LIII
