Re: APPM Questions

Is my understanding on this whole process more or less correct?:

  • as soon as I hit "Start" for the APPM run that first RA/Dec (Zenith) is sent to SGP (assuming I'm using SGP for dome movement);
  • SGP does the math required to figure out what Azimuth to send the dome to (should take like a Nano second - it is a computer after all); and
  • that Azimuth position is then sent to the Nexdome driver which then actually has the dome move?
Is that the way things should work? If so, then I would be guessing that the Nexdome driver may be the real issue in all this?
