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.
