I’ll add one flavor onto this.
I have the APCC park default set to 3, which is where I load and unload the OTA. In park 3 though, the telescope points (somewhat) up.
I have the Ascom V2 driver set to park 2. It has a separate default. The reason for this is that if rain is detected, the safety monitor tells NINA to tell ASCOM to do a park. Park 2 points the telescope horizontally, where less rain will hit the objective while I run outside to haul things inside, also I think most of the other devices are less vulnerable level. Note this is a “safety” inside NINA from an ASCOM safety monitor, not the same as APCC’s safety which is related to a disconnect.
So I agree with what you said sort of – I always manually park from APCC. But I have the other set up for a different purpose. It is nice that there are two defaults (actually three counting safety park in APCC).
