Hi Leo / all.
I’m new to Voyager and am currently trialing it. My main goal is to operate 2 (or 3) telescopes on 1 mount (a Mesu e200) and have it automated.
Other software programs don’t control 2 scopes on 1 mount very well. I have read the instructions, watched some videos and have had the software running for a couple of days indoors.
As I learn the software, I have some questions (most I can figure out or learn from other sources), but there’s one thing I don’t understand.
As I’m indoors, I’m using an Ascom mount simulator.
Voyager complains when I try to do a simulated slew - “MERIDIAN FLIP NOT MANAGED !!! Critical Damage possible !!! Check the mount position during sequence !!!”, so I looked into it.
In the meridian flip manager, there is an option for fork mount or GEM.
I have it set to GEM and Ascom pier mode normal
Whilst this is fine, and can look after meridian flips as normal, I don’t have a pier to crash into as mine’s a bent knee pier.
The Sitech software will control all aspects of the mount, and it will be quite happy to work with the weights up, therefore never needing a meridian flip.
How can I set as a GEM and turn meridian flip management off?
Do I simply set ‘Do flip after mount passing meridian’ to a very high number?
Or can you add a tickbox to disable meridien flip control and let the mount driver control this (which is they I think most other sequencing software handle this)?
