Meridian Flip failure with v2.5.0.23


I am using the Direct Mount Guider and had very reliable Meridian Flips since they were fixed a few months ago.

With the new version I got two failures last night.

You can see it in these log files: (at 11:37:39 PM) (at 12:48:20 AM)

Again, this used to work until last week before I installed the new version.




I’m afraid we can’t be of much help other than to say:

  • Your flip failed because your solve failed (and we do not have access to the solve image)
  • You did not have recovery mode on so the sequence quit
  • You only have one plate solver working for you (Just ANSVR). Typically, you would use a primary solver like Pinpoint or PlateSolve2 and use ANSVR as a backup (or another popular config is to use ANSVR as your primary solver and remote Astrometry.NET as your failover… requires internet connection)
