Automatic Target Centering

Sequencing ››
Parent Previous Next

This topic is intended to communicate how automatic centering is used within a sequence.  For details on centering go here.


The automatic centering routine will run during sequence execution when:


  1. The target is set to automatically center when it begins
  2. An automatic meridian flip is invoked


Auto Centering as Part of the Target's Settings



As pictured above, when the "Center on" box is checked, the target will automatically invoke the center on the location data provided in the RA / DEC fields above.


Auto Centering as Part of an Automatic Meridian Flip



When the "Use Auto Meridian Flip" box is checked, the routine will automatically invoke auto center after the mount has flipped (in order to correct mechanical inaccuracy introduced during the long slew).
