Roger that. Okay - I will still use your instructions Thursday when I return to the observatory. I really appreciate the help.

The Park positions are NOT in the CP1, 2 or 3. They are calculated in external software. The keypad is an example of external software. Also external software is the ASCOM driver, APCC and others.
CP1, 2 and 3 are just simple servo drivers that control the operation of the gears, nothing more or less. The CP controllers just translate RA/Dec to gear angles and power the motors. There is a built-in memory for PE correction curves and for present gear angles of the two gears, but that is about it.

Marj, for those of us using the CP2 controller still, does our ASCOM driver allow Park 4? I am away from my observatory - sorry.
