Re: Mach2 stuck in a slew while parked (APCC Pro)

Unfortunately, because of the misconfiguration, the error would have persisted. And since the slew never reached the destination, it is probably as good a reason as any to stop the client application from proceeding. If the park was reported then there would have likely been further errors in SGP that would have made it more time consuming to locate the original source of the problem. At least now you know what to do to solve the problem.

One more thing, in a case like this when APCC parks the mount in the middle of a slew, shouldn't APCC
communicate to the ASCOM driver that the slew was aborted and the mount parked? Two hours later, SGP was
still patiently waiting for the mount to complete the slew. The roof was still open when the sun came up and the
roof controller ultimately closed the roof due to unsafe sunny conditions but the sequence in SGP never
completed, as it was still waiting the the mount to report that the slew to the target had completed or failed.

Thanks,

Luca
