Meridian flip failure Plate solve or PHD2 issue?


#1

I tried a meridian flip unattended last night for the first time. It failed.

I cant really see from the part of the log what caused the failure, It looks like PHD2 stopped communicating for some reason. I have had manual failures when the plate solve will not give a close enough result on a flip. I put this down to the mount being unable to get really close to the meridian on flip. My usual plate solves get me to 5 or so pixels. On a meridian flip it can’t seem to get closer than 150 pixels.

Can someone take a look at this section of log and give me some guidence? Many thanks.

#2

Just like my first problem: What happened?I found three problems at least, and expect stable SGPro
Ken said: This is a known issue and will be addressed in the 2.5.2 beta (soon). It affects some cameras more obviously than others… sorry for an inconvenience.


#3

Thanks, so it looks like SGP is losing contact with my QHY5L in PHD2. And there is a fix in the next Beta.


#4

No, the connection is fine… the error reporting is not accurate. We will be putting a beta out soon.


#5

Thanks Ken, I appreciate the quick feedback.
