I have an A-P1100GTO mount and the expected EPOCH coordinates for this mount is JNow. I know the coordinates for target DSOs are in J2000 in Voyager but what if the mount expects coordinates to be JNow, does Voyager automatically convert J2000 coordinates to JNow coordinates before sending JNow coordinates to the mount?
The J2000 to JNow conversion can be useful so the first slew to target DSO since the mount was first powered up can be accurate enough that only one or no retry of centering the DSO can be made.
SGPro polls the mount for EPOCH information and if the mount returns JNow, SGPro automatically converts J2000 coordinates to JNow coordinates before sending JNow coordinates to the mount. It works very well with my A-P1100GTO mount and the DSO is pretty much dead center on the first slew since the mount was powered up.
