Re: Ap1200 / TheSkyX jog runaway


Roland Christen
 


One followup question.... If I use the AP1200 GTO keypad to center a
target, then do a Recalibrate in the TheSkyX, will that update the
AP1200's sky model? Or must I use the SkyX Jog controls if the mount is
controlled by SkyX?
You can always jog the mount with any device including the keypad, ASCOM driver or other applications. A jog move does not change the entry in the original GoTo program, it simply changes the position of the mount. When you then do a Recal using the original entry from the SkyX, you are telling the mount that this new centered position is now equal to the original GoTo entry. This is the way all mounts do Recal/Sync.

I hope that was clear.
