Here you can manage your sites. A site is defined by it’s name and includes a longitude and latitude. You can also retrieve and set the longitude and latitude of the mount.
Clicking this button will send commands to the mount to return the current longitude/latitude of the mount. The longitude and latitude returned from the mount will be placed in the appropriate fields. If the mount returned the values OK then the Site Name field will be filled with “Got Long/Lat OK”.
Clicking this button will send the displayed longitude and latitude to the mount. You can double-click any Site in the table below to load it into the Location, Longitude, and Latitude fields. Alternatively, you can single-click a site in the table and press the Edit button to load that site.
Clicking this button will place the site into the table below and into a disk database file, Locations.dat, which is in the install/run directory).
New sites are saved based on the name of the site. That is if you modify just the longitude and/or latitude for a site and click Save then the current site will be modified. However, if you change the site name and click Save a new site will be created and saved.
This button activates when you select (click on) a site in the site name table. Pressing it will load the site for you to edit. A shortcut for selecting and pressing edit is to double-click the site in the table.
This button activates when you select (click on) a site in the site name table. Pressing it will delete the selected site. You can only delete one site at a time and there is no confirmation before deleting so make sure before you click!
Note: Do not try to edit the text database (Locations.dat) by hand because it uses fixed fields that might be easy to change with human editing!
