Platesolving after the flip gone wild #51303
Had lots of Probelms yesterday after the flip.

Short version is:

When i work on the pierside "east pointing west" and click on an object to be centered in the telescope, the mount goes to a place quite far away and says "solver successful"
The mount-symbol is not where it should be and the "solver rectangle" is also NOT where i clicked on. But the solver says successful.
Thats right in the systems opinion, because it INDEED IS on the position it solved. But that is NOT where i wanted it to be.
I can then go wherever i want, it never moves to the point it should, but always says "solver successful"
Automatic flip is useless now...

It’s hard to say what was going on without debug logs. Can you enable them, try again and post the logs here please?

I notice you have an ASI120.

I too have one and have had problems related to plate solving+meridian flips, which I think are somehow linked to the ASI120:

indilib.org/forum/ekos/6096-meridian-fli....html?start=24#50012

The topic started when I only owned an ASI120MM but once I had something else I didn't seem to get the problem any more.

Now your problem isn't quite the same as mine, but the combination of an ASI120, meridian flipping and plate solving is too much of a coincidence. You've even got an EQMOD mount, I believe.
