jsg Why is AAP instructing the mount to wait an extra 6 min 14 seconds to initiate the flip??
I set it to stop tracking and guiding 6 min before flip and 6 min after flip.
Where is the extra 6 mins?
Your asked it to (1) stop taking images, and stop tracking 6 minutes before the hour angle of the mount reaches the meridian, and (2) not to initiate a GOTO to cause a Meridian flip until 6 minutes after the transit.
Transit is at 23:29, it has to stop tracking before 23:23 (images must not overlap into that epoch).
At 23:22, ASIAIR reported that is has stopped tracking.
Now it has to wait until the 6 minutes after transit that you have requested before it attempts the first meridian flip.
Transit is at 23:29. So, ASIAIR thinks it should send a GOTO to the mount at 23:35.
23:35 is about 12 minutes from the time ASIAIR begins its medirian flip choerography. That is exactly what is expected. Looks like a self inflicted wound to me.
