Post mount flip actions

Currently evaluating the software. Creating a drag script to image one target. I’ve created a sequence and added it to drag script. When the mount needs to flip at the meridan, I guess it will based on the setting I selected(manage flip) in the sequence tab. In The SkyX, normally I would stop imaging, stop autoguider, manually flip mount, closed loop slew to center, reacquire guide star, resume imaging. What would I input in to drag script to get it to all that? Thank you…

This is a kind of task done by sequence in automation. So use a Sequence block in DragScript:

Or if you want to test a single sequence use the OntheFly Sequence action command:

Sequence do exactly what you asked if you have selected options:

For example for guide select calibration and guide (and dithering) flag and settings:

You will found a tab for each category of task in sequence configuration, decide you setting for how you work and save as the sequence configuration in a file. Next time open it change what you need like target and exposure and save as different name to inherits.

stop imagine, stop autoguider, flip mount (not manually) , recenter target, restart guiding is something related if you decided to manage meridian flip, guiding. Recentering if plate solve is not disabled will be done in anycase.

All the best

Cool, If “managed” is selected for meridan flip, all that’s taken care of as part of Voyager “managing” the meridian flip…thanks!
