meridian flip: did not happen was created by alacant

Hi everyone
I have set the meridian flip at >0 hours in the capture module. We cross the meridian and the log window says that the meridian flip is going ahead but the mount does not move.

To get it to flip, I have to choose a target well passed the meridian and slew to it, wait, and then slew back to my original target. If I slew too soon, the mount flips back again to the target even though the target has crossed the meridian; I have to wait say, 15-minutes after the meridian to be certain it will not return east.

Any pointers on what I have set wrong here?
Cheers and TIA,
Steve

If you have a meridian limit set, it can cause that problem in any software on any platform.

But, the right question is -- where are the logs? :)

To be safe, set meridian flip if HA > 0.1
