I upgraded from The SKy 6 Pro to ThSkyX Pro. I use ochestrate to send a telescope park command to the Sky, which then parks my LX200 ACF at the end of my observing period. I can get ochestrate to move my LX200 to an object throught the SkyX, but I get an error on the park command. I import the following:
WaitUntil , 01/21/2012 16h16m00s , AppShutDown , TheSky 6, park tele
TheSky 6: should park the telescope and disconnet, but using the mask 6.
Since the SkyX has a special Meade tab for telescope control, maybe I need to send a differnet command.
I have doing this successfully with the Sky6 for years.
Also, the SkyX "autostar handbox" does not work. I never get any status in the status area.
ruggirel:but I get an error on the park command.
