I have noticed on some occasions that SGp stops the sequence to make a meridian flip even though the object is in the northwest.
The Meridian flip always fails. If I turn off the meridian flip and continue the sequence, the RA stops getting corrections in PHD2.
Have had this phenomenon with both HEQ5 and EQ6-R. I use the same drivers for both mounts so I suspect it is something
in EQMOD, but what? I have “Limits” disabled.
It is important to mention when the objects are at the meridian to the south, the flip is done without any problems every time.
Last night when this happened I was shooting Melotte 15, at 11:40pm. The RA axis stood almost straight down and the telescope on the “wrong” side of the pier. (West side pointing west)
I did a reset and started over with new platesolve, but same problem. Can’t guide in RA at this point.
Would be grateful if anyone recognizes this and can help me.
