Re: Sync vs Recaculate

Howard Hedlund

Hi Dean, Larry and Group,

I am still researching this, but my understanding at present is that the
Sync command in the Telescope Control Window of Maxim DL issues a full
sync through the ASCOM A-P driver. As such, use it only with great
care. I will try to provide more information as I learn it.

Howard or Roland,
I will repeat Dean Salman's question of yesterday as there has been no
response. What is the relationship of the Sync in Maxim compared to
AP's Sync versus Recalibrate? Is it safe to use?

In the Sky6 0.57 version a new button was added. This is use to sync
the Sky with the AP mount. Clear enough. Does anyone know what the
software will use (like Maxim DL) when it plate solves and does a
sync. I don't want it to do the wrong one which is why I turned that
feature off. I know this is a software question, but I thought I
try here first.
