Hi. I had a schedule setup for a 2x2 mosiac. When it came time to flip the tracking stopped but the mount did not flip.
Should a Meridian Flip work during a scheduled job?

Yes, it should perform the meridian flip.
Not flipping during a meridian flip is a common issue.
It is usually fixed by setting the "Flip if HA > ..." parameter on the Mount Page.
I tend to use 0.25 hours, others use different values, it's mount dependent.

Thanks. I had it set to 0.1 hours, I will try expanding it to 0.25.
