I had read that which is why I mentioned tracking vs slewing, as well as the safe slew.
I am still working on refining my imaging train, and I have hopes that as long as I do not go counterweight up I cannot crash, but I am not yet sure. I know on prior mounts I had to stop about 30 minutes early and wait about 30 minutes past meridian for some DEC angles.
So it may be moot once I get everything set up.
So I mostly want to confirm if I have that right, or if there is a way to carve out a “do not go there ever” space, how you do it?
