I'm trying to get the session craft tool to do a proper flip for me so I can sleep through it when I image on week nights. Up until recently, I've been imaging very near the NCP, and no flip has been necessary, but the target I'm working on now requires a flip very near the end of the session. The problem I seem to be having is that my mount (a CEM25) is flipping itself before APT tell it to. Last night was only my second time trying it, the first time it failed I thought it was just a messed up setting, which I *thought* I fixed last night. When I woke up this morning to see if the flip was performed correctly, the mount had already flipped itself, but APT didn't show the flip happening for another 30 minutes. In APT, the meridian passing showed as 4:35 AM, but the mount flipped at 4:02. A quick check on Stellarium showed that the target indeed crossed the meridian at 4:02, when the mount flipped. I double checked my location settings in APT, and they are all correct, and my plate solving that session craft uses is also correct, since goto++ works fine. I can tell session craft to start the flip 30 minutes earlier, but that seems extreme. Any insight to this problem? Thanks!
Edit: While on the topic of meridian flips, APT also tells me on startup "It is NOT possible to control the Side of Pier. Make sure to start flipping after meridian passing!". Is this part of my problem?
