I have a few questions concerning the zero position for the CEM70G that I've just purchased.
Is the zero position a manufacturer defined "home" setting or can you just put the mount to any position and then use the set zero position?
I'm told in the manual that it is important however unless the "new" zero position gets saved in firmware I don't see how this would aid you if there was a power reset and you wanted to track your last target. The manual has clear instructions about the zero position but the finer details appear to be unclear.
Perhaps somebody who already uses the mount can advise as I don't understand the option to "find" the zero position- what is it looking for- the manufacturer's zero position or the zero position you have just custom set and I'm assuming that any zero position would live in firmware or software when reset.
Sorry for the questions- it's all new to me!
One last question- if your mount is connected by ASCOM and is controlled by another package such as the SkyX I take it that is why the tracking is turned off in the tick button for the Iopton commander as I can't set this button to active when the mount is connected to the SkyX when using the ASCOM driver.
