It seems that there is a big delay in my previous post turning up. I hope it will eventually. In summary, I will try again tonight and see what I can do. Thanks.
But onto my next issue. Meridian Flip. I have set no Meridian Delay in AP V2, so I am running this as it was installed or "out of the box".
How long will the Mach1 track past the meridian before it will do a flip? Last night, as I was packing up, I thought I would just track a star and watch a meridian flip. (Never let my previous mount do this.) The star crossed the meridian and I let it go for nearly 25 minutes. The Pier Side indicator changed to CwUP, and it kept on tracking. After 25 minutes, I needed to get to bed, so I stopped the mount and did a park. No flip.
I had expected that soon after the object crossed the meridian, say 5 minutes, the mount would have done the flip. 25 minutes doesn’t worry me, but it seems a long time.
