Meridian flip


#1

Bit of a strange one last night, generally I have no problems with a meridian flip and everything goes as planned and imaging restarts after the flip with no problems, BUT! last night(early this morning) SGP shut down after a failed flip which is not surprising because I started imaging after my target had crossed the meridian! VDB9 crossed the meridian at 22:16 hrs, SGP decided at 04:20 hrs that it needed to flip! and shortly after shut down…
