CP4 Time & Location


Wes Atchison
 

Thanks guys, sorry for taking up you time.  After I posted the question I opened up " Telescope Setup" and realized there was my answer.  Since getting the mount recently I have very little time out using it and forgot I had entered locations for several sites.

Thank you again for all the great support, wish other companies stood behind their product like you guys do.

Best Regards,

You enter these things in the "Telescope Setup" window.

Subject: [ap-gto] CP4 Time & Location

Trying to get my head around how the CP4 gets the time and location from a computer.  I have read the manual for the CP4 and searched the topic on the group page.  I understand the information from the Keypad when powered up is the location selected in the Keypad.  If only a computer is attached when the CP4 is powered up I understand the time from the computer is uploaded to the CP4.  Where does the location come from?  Also, if a GPS is connected to the computer can that be used as the source of time and location?

If this information has been discussed before on the group I apologize or bring it up again but my search did not find an answer to my question.

Wes,

 

It comes from APCC or from the AP V2 driver.
