I have recently joined the group and while scrolling through the group messages I came across this one on Parking with the Sky. I have a 2008 900 GOTO with a Telvue 127is scope on it. I have been playing with the Sky and Pulse Guide and I find the same thing. The Sky doesn not park the mount properly in the AP park 3 position. It always leaves the RA axis with the counter weight shaft about 5 deg east.
Again when you park it with the key pad or pulse guide, everything works perfectly. I tend to use both Pulse guide and the sky together; ie the sky strictly as a planetarium program and input object coordinates into Pulse guide.
Clear Skys

I now park it with the keypad w/out any issue. Something is going on with Sky 6.

It's kind of strange. I have a friend with a 1200 and he parks perfectly.
I have everything setup the same, all clocks the same and mine still parks
one hour in RA off from where I train it. No matter how many times I have
trained it. I just ignore it now as it restarts with Pulseguide just fine.
Go figure.....

My AP900 parks just fine with TheSky. Perhaps you have something
wrong with your TheSky site or time settings. There has been a lot of
discussion in this forum about problems with the TheSky but I've not
seen them.

I'm having a problem using the Sky to park the mount. It doesn't
park properly - but it works fine with the hand control. Any ideas?
