INDI Library v1.9.3 Released (11 Nov 2021)

Bimonthly Stable INDI Library release introduces new drivers and fixes for existing ones. Some highlights:

Meridian Flip Issue

  • Posts: 35
  • Thank you received: 1
I tried my first meridian flip last night (NEQ6 Pro) and it didn't quite work out. I set the flip time to 0.2 after reading about the potential issues bouncing around the meridian when plate solving. 

This morning I had 16 of my 48 pictures waiting for me and the scope was pointing at the sky rather than parked (note it had performed the flip). The 16 photos were all pre-flip but then it stopped

This is the extract from the log with some comments:

You set it 0.2 degrees or hours?

Looks like it's only after 46s but this wasn't enough as this was within the alignment cone of error so instead of flipping, it performed a small GOTO.

Hi Jasem, it was hours. 

I see what you're saying but it had definitely done a meridian flip when I came to it this morning. Sadly it seemed to stop everything else at this stage (no pics and no park)

I can make the value larger and try again tonight, if there is anything else I can do to gather more useful information please let me know

Hi James,
it seems like you had the bad luck that the meridian flip started while aligning and subsequently capture aborted. At 01:00:31.190 you can see the warning that a sync was tried during the slew for the meridian flip. This happened because the solver was running in parallel while the meridian flip had started.

Please be so kind and upload your entire log file for further investigation.

Ah OK thanks, I'm not sure why it would be aligning when the meridian flip occurred unless it was in a retry.

Attached is the full log

I set it to 0.5 hours last night and it seems to have worked OK, there are still some things I don't understand in the log and I'm not entirely sure why it failed the night before. I have attached the log file and a few queries below:

Taking pics OK to this point

Hi James,
is the log file of the previous session - where you encountered the problem - available? If yes, please post. From the last session, your log file looks good, everything went fine. No idea where this empty filename comes from, you can ignore it.

For a little closure, I have now done half a dozen meridian flips with no issue using 0.5 hours as the trigger and it works well
