I hear your points. Problem was that IC410 was almost at zenith and I’ve already had to add a 12" extension to my G11 to prevent camera/tripod crashes in these cases. At that time, it was parallel with the mount and had very little room to play with. I might be able to add a 5-minute delay without a problem, but 5 degrees wouldn’t work, unfortunately.
Perhaps adding a delay for “Auto-center delay after meridian flip” and then I could add plenty of time before an auto-center is triggered? Another option - SGP tracks “Hey, I just slewed FROM that side of the mount - now I’m on the other side - I don’t need to flip back” logic.
Also, when I stop the back-flipping, I can go to my hand controller and issue a GOTO and the mount knows where to slew to find the object. Not sure what the difference is (if any) in the command SGP would issue to the mount for a GOTO.
Just my thoughts.
