Onstep 4.24c
Kstars 3.5.7 stable latest build
Indiserver don't know. Terminal command not found.

But all versions before won't work either accept 1.5.5 stellarmate, don't know the versions of Indi or Kstars from that one.
I can find out but not at home at the moment.

I have latest modification on github.com/azwing/indi
I made many tests with different set-ups and it works.
Would be nice if somebody could test before issuing a pull request.

I’ve not tested yet. My thank you was for the tip to enter West < East as a workaround for the problem.

I still have sometimes failures, OnStep complaining "Underpole Limit".
After increasing limits in Config.h
#define AXIS1_LIMIT_MIN              -200 //   -180, n. Where n= -90..-270 (degrees.) Minimum "Hour Angle" for Eq modes.      Adjust
                                          //         n. Where n=-180..-360 (degrees.) Minimum Azimuth for AltAzm mode.
#define AXIS1_LIMIT_MAX               200 //    180, n. Where n=  90.. 270 (degrees.) Maximum "Hour Angle" for Eq modes.      Adjust
                                          //         n. Where n= 180.. 360 (degrees.) Maximum Azimuth for AltAzm mode.
No more failures

Today the Meridian Flip fix has been merged to "libindi master" github.com/indilib/indi.
Most probably nightly builds will be available pretty soon.

Meridian Flip works fine as long as AXIS1_LIMIT_MIN and AXIS1_LIMIT_MAX are set respectively < -180 and > 180 (tested with -185, + 185)
Onstep version 4.24.p (Control Panel Firmware Data Tab)
indi_lx200_OnStep Version is 1.14 (Control Panel Connection Tab)
INDI Library: 1.9.5
kstars version 3.5.8 Beta

I'm confused, autoflip should be set to off when you want Ekos to control the flip no?

Ettore,

Meridian Flip e un Casino infernale :-)

There is a lot of confusion with Autoflip.
In fact there is no command to issue Autoflip.
There are only limits that define a windows (between limiot East and limit West) where Onstep executes a flip when a goto is issued in this window and only if Autoflip is set to ON.
Otherwise when you reach the meridian cross Onstep will stop track or slew.
Ekos simply issues a goto when the HA is reached.

Maybe It is still not clear see references:
