Tilt Sensor Unexpected Value

Monday, November 2, 2020 6:51 AM

Problem(s) Encountered:

Number of E-W tilt sensor is abnormal at zenith position. (Telescope pointing was correct in all target positions.)


For some reason, it stowed to HA=00:12:00, which correlates to the stated tilt sensor value.  Moved the telescope around, stowed it and all is fine.This may actually be an issue with how JSkyCalc interfaces to the TCS as this “error” does not happen typically when using the TCS command line to perform motions.
