Telescope mount position control

Synopsis

telescope [options] [set | get] [commands]

Description

The options are as follows:

options:

get:

(specify nothing, one or more option)

-ra

 print Right Ascension in degrees

-dec

print Declination in degrees

-a

  print Azimuth (180 deg = sud)

-z

  print Altitude

-ha

 print Hour Angle

-jd

 print Julian date

-synchro

 sychronisation,(1=values are probably correct)

-status

 print status of moving telescope

-velstat

RA and Dec velocities in format current/max

set:

(every option needs additional argument(s))

-coo

RA Dec set the Equatorial coordinates in degrees

-coa

HA Dec set the Equatorial coordinates (I. kind) in degrees

-cal

RA Dec calibrate Equatorial the coordinates in degrees

+ra

[ddd.d..] add value (may be negative) to R.A. in degrees

+dec

[ddd.d..] add value (may be negative) to Dec in degrees

+ra

[+|-] for continue slew without endpoint

+dec

[+|-] for continue slew without endpoint

+ra

! stop slew in Right Ascension

+dec

! stop slew in Declination

-vra

 set velocity of Right Ascension in degrees per second

-vdec

set velocity of Declination in degress per seconds

-vclock

set velocity of the hour clock

-c

on   start the hour clock

-c

off  stop the hour clock

options:

-host

address[:port] hostname of server, default to local

-q

don't print telescope status during setting of telescope

-pn

 show progress indicator (on new line)

-h

print this info

Setting of environment variable TELESCOPE_HOST is equivalent to -host option.
