Re: Parking via ASCOM

That’s a big negative Stuart. :) At least in my experience. I plan to do a test tonight when the sun sets…
Here is what is happening to me. I can designate a park position in TSX and if I park using TSX, it goes to that position, but when connected to CCDAP and it sends commands, it using the ASCOM park position (at least that’s what I think, due to the fact it parks in the current position, which is what was set in the ASCOM tab).
We shall see what happens tonight, or perhaps I will run a daytime test.

Scott / Joel, I'm not doubting you Joel but I happened to perform this very experiment two days ago. I have a AP900GTO CP2 running under ASCOM with the current driver. TSX is the control software. In the ASCOM driver I have "Park to current position" yet when I issued a park command in TSX, it went to where I had set the Park position in TSX months ago. So, my vote is that whatever program one uses (CCDAP, CCD-C, etc) it will send the mount to the park position that TSX has stored.
