Coordinates epoch in LX200 protocol was created by gaetano
Hi friends from Avalon,
I hope It is everything fine with all of you in these tough times.
My question is about the way celestial coordinates are accepted by the LX200 protocol used by StarGo, should they be J2k or JNow? Is the firmware performing any kind of internal epoch conversion?

Thank you!
Gaetano

Hi Gaetano

We are all well here at Avalon Instruments, thanks, we hope you the same.

The StarGo firmware doesn't perform any kind of internal epoch conversion, just perform command received from the planetary software used by the user.

Best regards
