Quote:Ray - autoparking with the S chip means I can cut the power without doing an explicit park command, and on startup I can just resume from park? sounds like a killer feature that would help remote imagers a lot... if it's foolproof, as the older AP mounts don't have homing sensors...
Quote: the extended autoguider commands would only be utilized if pulse guiding through the ASCOM interface right
Quote: Not too far from Mexico to drive, right?
Quote:Yes, the new autoparking command was implemented specifically for remote imaging so when power is lost then regained the mount would not automatically start tracking. Having the mount start tracking automatically before being initialized is great for visual users but for imagers it can cause the mount to appear to be "lost" if not initialized soon after power is restored.
