Re: Does NINA auto meridian flip with APCC

You asked there 10 minutes before posting here, Rouz. I might be at my computer a lot, but I do sometimes step away for a few minutes :D

 

Yes, you need to have Use Telescope Side of Pier turned on in NINA’s meridian flip settings, which is the default for that setting. This option exists because some telescope drivers lie about their pointing state, but the A-P driver does not. With that off, the flip won’t happen if you also have a delay set in the A-P driver or APCC as the coordinates will still be within the post-meridian delay zone. NINA will think that the telescope is flipping, but the telescope thinks it has more counterweight-up runway and keeps on going. This is why managing the flip via the side of pier property is important in this case as there is no way for any app to know about any delays that are configured in or enforced by the driver.

I have, no responses yet.

Not sure if its a Nina setting or something in APCC.
