AP 1100 mount:
It's often useful to start an imaging run with CW up to avoid an eventual meridian flip. Currently, to do that, I slew to the target with the usual default of landing there with CW down, and then do a meridian flip, re-center, and start to image.
1) But is there a way to tell the mount that I would like it to point to my target in the CW up position? This would streamline things quite a bit.
2) Related: Once I'm near my object with CW up, I may want to slew to a nearby object to e.g. re-synch. The mount again does this according to its default, landing there with CW down--which is not helpful. So, a short slew of a couple degrees completely reverses the mount, and is also not what I want--I want to re-synch with CW up.
2 1/2) Essentially same at 2): Likewise, I'd like to slew initially to a star near my target, landing there with CW up, synch, and then slew to the target, keeping CW up. I can't figure out how to do that; the mount always wants to land CW down when slewing.
There are two ways the AP1100 can point to an object, and it seems that there should be a simple way to tell the mount that I want to choose the one with CW up.
Any help would be much appreciated!
