Meridian Flip Failed - Beta

Meridian flip failed. Log says user aborted but I was asleep and did not abort it. The log seems to indicate that the flip was successful followed by a successful recenter. The scope and dome were parked (as expected after a sequence failure) this morning so I can’t really way where they were pointing when the sequence aborted.

I’ve had many successful automatic meridian flips before, but this is my first run with this beta.

I am unable to produce this issue in testing. This almost always means that it a timing issue. That said, I think I do know why it’s happening, but, obviously, I am not able to determine if it will solve your issue. Next beta is coming soon.

OK. Thanks, Ken. I’ll try again tonight and I’ll set an alarm so I can get up and watch it flip!

Mine did the same thing. Sequence stopped and the system shut down after a failed meridian flip. The log says it was user aborted but I was in bed at the time.


Please give beta 704 a shot

Will do. Meridian flip will be in about 7 1/2 hours. I’ll post with success or failure!

Success. Everything seems fine. It actually flipped a couple of minutes before I got out there to check on it. The sequence is still running and looks good.
Thanks for the quick response, Ken.
