    What's that?

    Just before the morning I thought i'd take some images of M83. But after processing in the bottom right there was a object and i'm not sure what it is. Does anyone know what it might be?

    I put plastic bags on my feet, it helps a lot

    EQMOD meridian flip?

    The mount performs great. And yes the "pro" version does support EQ mode. I'll be honest, I'm in love with this mount, for the price it performs better than I could've expected.

    EQMOD meridian flip?

    You need to resend the slew command of same object and if the mount sees it's already past the meridian, it should perform an automatic meridian flip. the mount won't flip on it's own. But I can probably just set up a script to click the mouse button once the object is past the meridian.

    EQMOD meridian flip?

    No, it was cheaper to buy it without it. I use the synscan app for pc. But I guess now i'll try to find a different program to automates meridian flips.

    EQMOD meridian flip?

    Probably not. But it work great with everything other than eqmod
