Maxim dl ieq45 pier flip
Posted 27 January 2013 - 01:54 AM
Anyways, that's the good, the bad is how to handle pier flips. With my eq6 pro, eqmod would give me the time to meridian flip. I would set a timer, re-slew and it would flip. This with this mount, I'm not sure how to get time to flip? Also, the OTA was getting pretty close to the tripod, I tried slowing a bit and slowing back to the target, but no flip. How do I get it to flip when getting to close to the tripod?

5.4.10. Meridian Option
The Meridian Flip can be turn on or off. If the Meridian Flip is turned off, there are two more options:
Meridian Protection ON or OFF. This function is available for 8406 hand controller firmware V1.10 or later.
5.4.4. Meridian Treatment
This function tells mount what to do when it tracks across the meridian. There are three options.
Stop Tracking will stop the mount when it passes the meridian. Telescope Flip will flip the telescope and
continuous to track the object. The third option is Continue to Track. In this case, the mount will keep
tracking and the OTA could hit the tripod leg if the mount is not monitored.

So, anyways, to rephrase my question, how do I get the mount to make a predictable meridian flip, or get it to flip on que. also, how do i get it to play nice with the software, so that it doesn't mess up my imaging session?
