Hi,
Thanks. It seems though that the change I make to the HA limit in the hand controller is not persistent. So I have to enter a value each time I start my system. Would be nice if I can leave the hand controller 'in the box':)

Hi,
* New on this forum, so I hope this post is appropriate...
* I have a CEM40 mount controlled by EKOS from Stelllarmate/RPi4. I want to do automated meridian flips, but the CEM40 stops tracking as soon as the HA reaches zero (limits are not enabled in EKOS). I can make the flips work work by (i)  taking the mount hand controlller and go to the Settings/Meridian Treatment//Set Position Limit (ii) dial in *any* value for the maximum hour value - I just need to change it. After that the automated meridian flips from EKOS consistently work.
* Is this setting accessible in INDI/EKOS? I couldn't find it....
Cheers,
Auke

Hi, 
* New on this forum, so please let me know if I am off topic....
* Trying to do a meridian flip with an iOptron CEM40 controlled by EKOS on an RPi4. What happens is that the tracking stops as soon as the HA reaches zero - so no flip. (The EKOS HA limits are not enabled) The problem seems to be with the limit settings inside the mount: if I set the "Meridian Treatment/Position limits" with the hand controller the mount happily continues to track for HA>0. Unfortunately it seems that I have to actively set this each time the mount goes through a power cycle. Anybody seen something similar?
Cheers, Auke
