Rotate with Instrument Rotator Action

 

This action will rotate the instrument rotator.

 

The New Rotation Angle specifies the new Position Angle for the camera.  The specified angle is not the rotator angle, but the actual north angle of the camera.  CCD Commander will automatically compute the rotator angle and move the rotator the proper amount.  Additionally, if the guider moves with the rotator, CCD Commander will recompute the guider coefficients to ensure guiding can continue after rotation.

 

The Get Position Angle from TheSky6 FOVI button will automatically query the Position Angle from the active FOVI in TheSky6.  This allows you to properly frame your target and select a guide star using the FOVI in TheSky6.  CCD Commander will then enter the proper Position Angle for you, allowing a simple method of generating your action list.
