Rolando,

 

If I can leave the keypad alone, why is there a PDF listed on your website that addresses resetting time in the keypad semi-annually:

and was wondering if I have to reset the hand controller on the AP1600 now that we are back to standard time?

You can leave the keypad alone. If you want to use the keypad as your watch then set the time and daylight savings to the current conditions. Otherwise leave it alone and the keypad will always send the correct time to the mount regardless if you change the clock in the spring or fall. In other words, one setting, either winter time with daylight savings set to zero or summer time with daylight savings set to 1 results in exactly the same time being sent to the mount servo.

 

I never change the hours and daylight savings number on my keypad, I just tweak the minutes and seconds if I want to be really anal about sending exact time to the mount.

I have an AP1600 and also the Standard version of APCC.  I do not always use APCC and was wondering if I have to reset the hand controller on the AP1600 now that we are back to standard time?
