Meridian Flip failed


Mike Wagner
 

 Hello,
Was running onstep for an imaging run, and the automatic meridian flip failed - Here is the log from SGP

It stating that the starting side and ending side are the same - but its 5 minutes past the meridian. Not sure if I have something in my config wrong or what.

I have had no problems doing this with my Atlas with EQMOD - so I know it is a matter of getting the right setting.

Mike
