Failed meridian flip

Failed meridian flip was created by Lenny

My mount failed to solve its position after a meridian flip the other night and I was wondering if there was an issue or if it was something with my setup. I had it set to flip 0.2 degrees past.

Your mount needs a longer period beyond culmination for the flip to succeed. See for instance this discussion:
