Last night, however, it did fail.
No updates to the system.
SM 1.5.2 on RPI4. Windows client. KStars 3.4.2.
Have been using this config since early March (in self-isolation).
So. Last night it failed. It started the flip but the slew never ended. The speed slowed down to almost zero and it was going and going and going very slowly...
I had to shut the system down and restart.
The night before was just fine (and many nights before too were fine).
Strange glitch.



Hi Max,

I am having exactly the same problem, but only lately. Can you post your log file, there is something I want to check with regards to the very slow slew. Please also post a recent one where the flip worked. I would like to compare them with the log on my iOptron mount where the flip failed in a similar manner as what you are describing.

Thx, Jo
