Re: Script to park mount at flat panel #APCC

Hi Rathi,

The attached vbscript file can slew the mount to Alt/Az coordinates and exit when the slew has completed.

You will need to change the Alt Az values in the script to the values for your flat panel. You will also need to rename the file without the ".txt". It needs to have a file extension ".vbs".

Subject: [ap-gto] Script to park mount at flat panel #APCC

Hi everyone,

Is there a way to move my telescope to a specific Alt/Az position (location of my flat panel on my observatory wall)
via a script? I use SGP to image and it does not support going to a specified Alt/Az position to take flats, but it does
support running a script before taking flats.
