Hi Ray,

I wrote about this two years ago. I managed it till that time by
starting only from the keypad.

Hi Pierre,

So it seems that the problem might be fixed by changing the keypad
to write in the range -180 to 180 instead of 0-360. I think because
Pulseguide writes in the range -180 to 180 the value is retained
after a power cycle.

as the AP protocol is extending the LX200, I read back the LX200
description (
<> )
This indicates the presence of the sign, and that East longitudes
negative (so -180 to 180 is the expected range).
The trace from ASCOM - and the log from PulseGuide both show a value
near 360 (but wrong: 355*50 for E 5 50).

Okay, I guess the docs just left out the sign desination.

Thanks Ray

Hi Chuck,

Negative values work just fine in the test I just did.
