I have been developing a computer program on Linux to control the GotoNova 8401 Hand Controller. The commands
provided in iOptron documentations do not seem to be complete. They are very similar to Astro-Physics commands.

While I can change the longitude and latitude (commands ":Sg sDDD*MM:SS#" and "St: sDD*MM:SS") from the program, they are not saved (or used ?) and have to go to the controller to press enter to save them and then restart communication with the program.

I need the command to save these two setting to the active ram.

Any Help is appreciated,
