I have a CGEM-DX mount with the Celestron Star Sense system and never had an issue using SGPro automatic Meridian Flip during any of my imaging session on my mount until just recently. The only change that occurred was going from Daylight Savings to Standard time on the Hand Controller. This might just be a coincidence but thought I would mentioned it. Anyway, instead of wasting valuable night time trying to isolate the issue is there a way to test the automatic Meridian Flip using SGPro during the daylight hours to see if I can isolate the cause. Each time it fails I get “Pier Flip Failed” with an ASCOM Exception dialog box, see below.,
I always go to the mount during all flips just to make sure everything goes according to plan. what I noticed when this happens the mount starts it move, then suddenly stops and the pier flip failed messages appears.Again, maybe just a coincidence but all of my flips have always worked up until I change from Daylight Saving to Standard time.
Any suggestions on how to go about testing this during the daylight hours would be greatly appreicated.
