Re: Understanding automation-based corrections/sync #Mach2GTO #Keypad

So RCAL prevents a SYNC from the wrong side of the pier or more than a 5 degree single correction attempt (you
can still repeat these to get > 5 degree cumulative error). This protection is great for a mount with Relative
Encoders and probably the best it can be, but it leaves a lot on the table for a mount with Absolute Encoders.
In regards to sync/recal checking, there is no difference in the way APCC treats mounts with relative and absolute encoders. The 5 degree range check is meant to be additional check over what the ASCOM driver does (no checking at all).
