Last night I encountered an issue - not for the first time - but it’s happened several times. After imaging for about 2.5 hours, it was time to perform a meridian flip. I got the normal “countdown” and hit the “flip now” option as there was only about 15 seconds before SGP automatically did so.
I watched as SGP went through the regular routine of taking an image, the moving the scope to the other side of the mount. Once there it started its plate solve routine…then, here comes the scope slewing BACK to the side of the mount it had been on. I grabbed the hand control and stopped the slew as I wasn’t sure where the scope would end up. At that point I was just frustrated and shut everything down. Also, there doesn’t appear to be a “graceful way” of exiting or halting SGP when this occurs. The only option on the menu is to “resume sequence” and since the scope is pointing to la-la land, there’s no point in SGP starting to take images immediately,
As stated, this has happened on numerous occasions. Anyone else experience this “feature”?
