Newbie question: How to predict a meridian flip

Michael Hayford <mjhayford74@...>

I'm a relative newbie with a Mach 1. I've started imaging and have had the mount do a meridian flip on me when going to a new target. I've had some close calls with the camera, guider and laptop all connected to the suddenly moving mount. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to anticipate when a meridian flip will occur? Kinda a "Meridian Flip for Dummies" set of steps.
Thanks in advance for your patience and help.
