Re: Preventing tracking on power up?

Ray Gralak

Hi Tom,

The mount should not unpark and start tracking by itself. Is APCC running and initializing the mount when powered on?

Is this a hand control issue?
If you are using APCC, you should configure the hand controller for external initialization or disconnect the hand controller.

It seems that even though the mount is parked at the end of the evening, and then the power is turned off, when the
power is turned on, the mount automatically starts tracking. This is an issue for me since the telescope is covered
and I want to power up everything before uncovering it.
I am using APCC and have a CP4. Is this a hand control issue?
Thanks, Tom
