meridian flips RA only causing collision: latest git #57378
Hi everyone
The meridian flip -ar around 00:26- rotated the mount in RA only, causing the camera attached to the Newtonian Reflector to collide with the mount (the telescope was upside down) DEC did not move. Luckily I was present, but otherwise I would have lost a camera...

Any ideas? The mount -eq6- has default settings for limits.

TIA,
Steve

Because the flip is just a slew, I'd check the object coordinates in the log and look for a weird destination. If it is indeed weird, the issue is in Ekos, if it is not, the issue is in INDI or the mount geoloc.

The target coordinates for the MF slew look fine (same as last target slew). And the EQMOD log confirms that the DEC encoder is not changing values....
My last two flips went fine, though that is with git status from Saturday, and a different mount (CEM60EC/iEQ). So I'd look at the indi_eqmod driver and its config options...
