CG-5 and Meridian Flips
Posted 26 April 2013 - 11:29 AM
I sometimes have to power down the mount and realign, then go to my object.
I'm obviously missing something because this is beyond annoying and totally prevents me from using automation to do automatic meridian flips.
I often but not always run with NexRemote.
Thanks for any insight.

Are the actions any different between the real HC and NexRemote?
What version firmware are you using? (for both the real HC and NexRemote)
Any filter limits set?
Any other issues doing long goto slews?
What power source are you using for your CG-5?
Nice gallery of images.

1) When using NexRemote, settings you make like tracking rates and such get saved in the hand controller.
2) Somehow, my Meridian setting got set to disabled. I must have done this at some point for who knows what reason. I reset it to current which is I believe what I want. I want it to go to the side of meridian that the object really is on. Favor East or Favor West would not do that.
Hopefully, this has it sorted.

The HC firmware knows which mount it's talking to from the motor controllers. The Meridian function is functional for the CGEM and CGEPro mounts.
