Re: Mach1 Unable to Find Home Position Suddenly

Roland Christen

Any time any app opens the AP ASCOM driver it will initialize the mount, whether it unparks or not. Apparently your app (SGP) opens and unparks the mount automatically.

A mount is NOT initialized when the ASCOM driver shows RA=+12hrs and Dec = +90*00:00deg.
A mount is initialized, Dec will show any angle other than 90*00:00 deg.

Nothing probably to do with this but previously (older versions of AP V2) when you launched the driver, it asked if you want to unpark the mount. The current one does not do that and I notice that even though I have not initialized the mount, the screen shot I attached says that the mount is unparked.
