Hi Rouz,

Yes, there was a change to APPM to use the Real-time RADec feature to get the RA and Dec from the mount with less latency. The installed APCC Pro has an extra character (":") in the RA string response, which is invalid, so it always returns RA=0. You can see this in the APPM logs.

This was confusing to me because this was a bug I had fixed before creating the release. When I retested this morning, I could reproduce the problem with the installer version of, but not with the debugger on my computer. They should have had the same behavior, so I think I must have missed a step in building the APPM release executable.

So, I apologize for the issue. I created a new version,, which I tested, fixes this issue:;data=04%7C01%7C%7C63d31817c7e4488368bd08d97e921a8c%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637679988244006680%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&amp;sdata=k3%2FtMjarkmbSruortO0cyf%2BukA9febN%2Fo7%2BYADIP2q4%3D&amp;reserved=0
