Could limits be programmed into the control box to stop this from being a danger? Sure would be nice if a meridian flip fails for some reason, power is left on and forgotten about, or if connected to a laptop and the laptop crashes and the mount has nothing to tell it to stop tracking or park at the end of the night. I know APCC addresses some of these situations, but requiring a computer to be connected at all times is not always ideal. Seems like it would be a huge bonus to safety, we have some pretty expensive equipment riding on these mounts.
