Re: Interesting Park using NINA
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
NINA just tells the ASCOM driver, essentially, "Park the mount". It's up to the driver and mount controller to get the mount into the park position that is configured in the ASCOM driver. NINA and other upper-level apps aren't aware of what the physical orientation of the park position actually is; they only know whether the mount is parked or not.
As for why your mount didn't land in the Park 3 position, looking at the AP ASCOM driver logs might help determine why. Perhaps you hit the stop button by accident. There could be a time issue at play, so make sure your PC's clock is accurate and that the "Sync mount time at initialization" and "Keep mount time synced to PC time" options are checked in the AP ASCOM driver's setup options. You can access this through the "Setip Telescope" utility or by pressing the gears icon next to the driver selection drop-down box in NINA. I'm not sure, but you may need to reinitialize your mount to get the time to sync. Of course you ought to ensure that your PC's own clock is fairly accurate and is itself synced to a time source, if possible. See the attached screenshot.
