    Default Mount tracks past flip point.

    Hi Bob,

    Since one month ago i had had the typical configuration of German Mount Flipping:

    1. From East to West - 0.0 minutes.
    2. From West to East - 0.0 minutes.
    3. Mount can track 0.0 minutes
    4. Mount needs 2.0 minutes.

    I didn't have any issues with this configuration exclude waiting sometimes.

    About one month ago Dan Gray (Sidereal Technology) released a new driver with possibility to track after meridian. I changed the setting of mount driver to tracking 8 degrees (32 minutes) after meridian and changed ACP configuration to:

    1. From East to West - 0.0 minutes.
    2. From West to East - 0.0 minutes.
    3. Mount can track 30.0 minutes
    4. Mount needs 2.0 minutes.

    Today, i was a witness a wrong behavior of ACP. The plan contains two images by 30 minutes and first image was started acquiring at 25 minutes before meridian and finished at 5 minutes past. I supposed that ACP must did flip and continue acquired the second image. But ACP continued acquiring the second image. Of cause at 32 minutes past meridian the mount started flipping and i had to stop ACP.


    What is wrong in my configuration?


    The log is attached.
