I think that what I meant with the threshold.

Wolfgang,

Taking on board what you were saying about how it currently works, I wanted to perform the flip a bit earlier. I currently have the Hour Angle set to zero degrees, but when I try to enter a negative Hour Angle it does not allow it.

That's true, but if you are familiar with building from sources, the limitation is set in mount.ui.

Wolfgang,

I have managed to get around the issue of the meridian flip hour angle not allowing negatives.

A tripod extension, that I bought in May has finally been shipped and delivered and it allows me to use a positive hour angle.

I do wish the other meridian flip problems could be addressed but I can now mostly work around them.

Glad to hear it, thanks. Allowing negative values should not be that complicated, I have it on my list.
The other idea about forcing a flip when capturing takes too long as well, but that might take a while.
