I would love to know if there might be a way to use a USB gamepad to pan and tilt the Orion/Merlin as wall as the mouse over click on the Pappywizard UI?
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I thought this was adjusted in the Pappywizard shooting menu but after several attempts using different settings I failed to reverse the pitch direction. My canon G10 only fits on the head in one direction. It sits on the head so all the connections are out on the right side. The left side of the camera sits flush with the pano head.

Ok this is kind of odd... I am running papywizard 2.0.0 and don't have the pitch arm side drop down box in the shooting tab/menu. My choices are "head orientation", "camera orientation" and "Stablization Delay".
What do you think?

The latest bug I'm experiencing is in automatic mosaic shooting mode. Today I went out and wanted to capture a mosaic. I set the upper left corner then followed by the lower right corner. The process goes across the first row just fine then the pano head moves to the next row but keeps tilting downward way past the bounds I originally set. This happened both times I tried to make a mosaic.
Any ideas on what's going on.

I didn't let it rotate around too far. I immediately stopped the mosaic and restarted... only to find out it did it again.
Tomorrow... I'll have another go at it to see if there is anything that looks odd or not right with the head.

I had to spin the pitch forwards to where I just let it run to get it back to 0 or else it always was -3780. Now when the unit starts up its at 0 which is where it should be.
One observation however sometime in the mosaic the shooting menu the area is filled pink and won't shoot. I think that happens when the batteries are low, however what other conditions cause that?
Lastly head speed... I've always used the head on normal speed... can I be using it in fast mode? I just didn't want to wear it out?
