Thanks. After I sent those messages I watched your videos a few more times and re-read the APCC instructions. I found that I have been creating the meridian limit models incorrectly. The instructions clearly state how to set the first point, something I wasn’t doing, and that for subsequent points one should slew to the horizon if you don’t hit the pier. I wasn’t doing that either. Reading is fundamental... everything is working perfectly now.
As a follow on, regarding operations with imaging software. I use SGP. It seems that once you have the horizon and meridian limits set correctly in APCC for CW up east and west slews that all meridian tracking and pier flip features in SGP should be turned off, and that meridian reporting from APCC to SGP should also be turned off. Would you agree? It sure seems unnecessary at that point since the APCC horizon and meridian limit settings will take care of all slews and stock tracking at the limits.
