Because of the meridian flip issues I’m having with my CEM60, I have a target programmed to stop imaging 5 min before meridian, and then the same target set to start 5 min after meridian has passed. The mount is handling the flip.
At 9:50 pm target 1 was programmed to stop, meridian would be reached at 9:53. An autofocus triggered and finished at 9:44 but it started another 10 min exposure which didn’t finish until 9:55 which was after the stop time and also while the mount was doing the flip. Of course, PHD started beeping and flashing because it didn’t have a guide star anymore. At 10 pm, it then started on the post-meridian target by plate solving, restarted PHD and then imaged as it should.
Since there was not enough time left before the stop time, shouldn’t SGP not start that final image and wait for the next target time? Also, it did not pause guiding when it finally did go into its waiting period before the next target and since the mount had done a flip it didn’t have a guide star and was alarming.
Is there a different setting somewhere that I missed or do I just have to set my stop time before meridian greater than my exposure duration?
