But likely the fov would have change significantly, so your target would have drifted out of frame
>>>This confounds automated meridian flips because the mount "thinks" it is pointed somewhere other than where it actually is. Often, the difference is too slight to be significance, but sometimes not.
The meridian flip automation i use includes a re-centering of the target via plate solve, which I think is pretty common
