I've got a wierd problem during Apollo 7.
During P52 with the OPTICS MODE sw in CMC, the optics won't move.  I get a 06 92 that displays the current Shaft and Trunion angles but the optics don't move.  The Optics move fine in manual and ther rest of P52 works fine.
Scenario attached.
Anyone seen this before?

After some troubleshooting I do not know why the CMC was not controlling the optics.  However upon performing a V36 and setting the REFSMMAT and drift flags via V25 N07 and such I did a fresh P51 and P52 and the optics worked fine.  Something wasn't set properly in the computer for it to control optics I guess but some of these other guys could tell you better than I why because I do not know!

Anyways, perform a CMC restart and try again, should work!

That's for the automated star tracker, which isn't simulated yet. And I have found that on very rare occasions the optics won't respond to auto commands. I typically reload scenarios when that happens.
