Can’t model East points with CW up


Wayne Hixson
 

Hi Ray,

In your video setting up the limits, you said to change the action to “just warn” when the limit is reached. I want the scope to flip so as to better track over the eaves of the house. I tried it last night and it seems to work fine.

Thanks, Wayne

I am not sure which scenario you are talking about?

"Flip" will only apply when pier-side is West. With the East/West limits defined like in the video any slew to a target (on either pier-side) will result in counterweight-up if the target is East of the meridian and West of the limit at the target's declination.

I have my mount set to flip early and want APPM to model E points while CW are up. I think I’ve followed the
instructions allowing CW up skews in APPC and APPM, but cannot make it work.
