In the past I only managed an auto flip about 40-60% precent of the time. So I always set an alarm to wake me up so I can watch it. Every time it fails there is a different sequence. (no flip or says it flipped but did not or flips then solves the wrong way.....)

Anyway my last "FIX" was to clear ALL alignment and sync settings and turn off ALL sync and align functions in EKOS, there are 3 tabs under EQMOD-EKOS. This is not remembered by EKOS so needs doing after every restart.

It now works about 90% of the time.

I have never had a flip work near the zenith.

I will look into mount settings mentioned above to see if I can get nearer to 100%.

(This is all on SW EQ5, 6 and 8)
