automatic meridian flip revisited was created by MikeCEM60
I tossed this question up a few weeks ago, and Jasem's suggestion to increase SETTLE to 3000 or 4000 seemed to work for a while. Was less active recently, played with my new refractor, so I just didnt need the flip until yesterday
The automated flip started as expected, at the right time, and guiding and exposures were stopped. a few seconds after initiation - I guess after 5000ms (my Settle value) and the mount was still slewing, EKOS started the next plate solve. It also did not try to solve for my original Target M51, but for some other galaxy half way to the celestial pole from there... had to intervene to save the sequence...
my question: what triggers the plate solve after a flip? is there a signal sent from the mount (CEM60)? OR does EKOS analyze mount position data and triggers the plate solve when the slew is complete? OR or is this just a delay/ timer function?
