|Summary||0001963: Date/time is not updated to the mount upon startup|
|Description||I am using OnStep motor driver and noticed that Date/time is not updated to the mount upon startup, so the clock in the mount is totally wrong which makes pointing the mount incorrect.|
I did not notice this behavior with EQMOD, although the reason for this might be that in case of EQMOD all calculations are done on PC, whereas with Onstep it is done in the mount.
On the other hand, Kstars does set the correct date/time during startup.
|Steps To Reproduce||Connect to Onstep motor driver and observe that timestamp in the "Site Management" tab is incorrect. |
I suspect that same behavior can be reproduced with any mount, except EQMOD.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Yes, at the moment nothing is done to set the mount time at startup.
There is several reason for that, one is that many mount require to do the alignment with the handpad before to connect to the computer, so the time must be set correctly in the mount before the connection and not changed later.
Another half of the user may want the computer time to be set from the mount because it include an accurate GPS unit.
And finally you want to set the mount time from the computer at startup.
This require to add an option with this 3 choices:
- do nothing
- set computer time from mount
- set mount time from computer
Before I add this option you can just open the INDI dialog for the mount to set the time.
I add the option to set the mount time when connecting.
I not add an option to set the computer time because this require administrator privilege and I not want users run ccdciel as administrator.
There is also an option to send the configured observatory coordinates to the mount.
When activating this options you must be sure the mount is not aligned when you connect ccdciel. Otherwise you may have to redo the alignment procedure.
