Re: Mach2 tracking below custom horizon

Thanks Ray and Bill. 

I was just running APCC, APPM, and SGP to collect exposures. This is why I was puzzled. I’ll keep an eye on it and see if I notice this behavior again.

Voyager has a tracking watchdog. If you were using Voyager it likely started it again.

Hi Luca,

APCC indicates the limit was reached, and tracking had been stopped. However, if another application was connected, that application could have re-enabled tracking again.
