I am using a long refractor on an Astro-Physics Mach 1 German equatorial mount with GoTo controlled by Sky Safari 6 Plus on an iPad. Does this app allow me to enter movement limits for the mount so that the eyepiece end of the telescope does not crash into the tripod during slewing?
The Astro-Physics keypad allows this function, so I know the Mach1 firmware is capable of receiving safe-zone instructions.
Does Sky Safari have this function? If not, would you consider adding it to the list of commands for scope/mount control? It shouldn't be too difficult and it is a critical function. Btw, I know Sky Safari incorporates a "STOP" soft key, but a safe-zone function would be much more helpful. Thank you.
