- Strange AP1100 behavior

Mike et al - another thought is that the Timezone offset may have the wrong sign. This happened to me (different software) and it was crazy-making. Everything looked right except for the absent tiny little '-' in front of the 5 in my timezone offset.

My Friday night imaging was spoiled by this same issue.... I'm glad I was in the observatory and caught it before the scope slammed into the pier.
I sat out there for quite a while trying to get (my AP1200) to sync to Capella and then slew to a extremely nearby focus star. Every time it wanted to slew the scope under the pier. I sync'd and recal'd repeatedly with the CW shaft very clearly pointed downwards.
I sat and thought.... obviously... the mount thinks it is the wrong time. But where in APCC can I check the actual time, timezone and DST setting within the mount itself? I am not talking about what the APCC site says it _should_ be set to, I mean, what it _is_ set to? I did not see this anywhere.
