Hello and thank you for the awesome software!
I am currently trialling SGP and the only thing i cannot get to work is the the auto meridian flip.
I have ASCOM 6.1 latest updates applied (according to the updater of ASCOM)
HEQ5 PRO mount
I have set the side of pier setting on EQMOD to physical and it now shows time to meridian in SGP telescope, whereas before it would just show : NA, but its always some 13-15ish minutes difference with what the EQMOD is reporting in the mount limits editor.
I have also set the time on EQMOD as J2000 (same as the astronomy.net local solver).
I am able to perform accurate flipped gotos and the EQMOD performs auto meridian flips if the appropriate select box is on in the mount limits editor.
What am i doing wrong?
Due to this time difference (i suspect), SGP or the mount or the combination! always fails to perform the flip.
It’s my understanding that the SGP takes its position and sidereal time from EQMOD, so how can it always have a set amount of difference on time remaining to meridian flip?
Also the meridian flip [run] button is usually greyed out and says on hover : Telescope must be pointer across the meridian to flip.
Does anyone has HEQ5 PRO mount and be able to perform meridian flips with SGP ?
Here is a log of today trying to perform an auto meridian flip. It fails without much info (to me at at least! )
Thank you for your time and clear skies to all
