Never had this happen until tonight for the first time but when my telescope went for a meridian flip it could not complete step 1 ‘solve and sync’. I am using PlateSolve2.
It asked me if I wanted to do the meridian flip or wait until my image was finished being captured so I did the flip, it tried to sync and plate solve but plate solve kept on searching regions and got up to 350 without anything happening.
I aborted the solve, then it said complete and went onto step 2 all the way to step 5 and it worked perfectly.
Has anyone seen this happen before with step 1? Luckily I was monitoring it otherwise it would have been stuck in a loop and my entire sequence would have been aborted.
I have noticed something similar happen a while ago where plate solve would just keep searching for regions even though it was almost on the target.
