I have a German Equatorial LXD650 mount with #1697 CDS which is equivalent to
the LX200 Classic. When the system boots up the display shows version 6.205 in
the handbox which is version 3.2. When I train PEC and the routine ends, no number
shows in the handbox display -- this may be due to the age of the firmware. In any
case, I'd like to be able to turn PEC on and off without losing the training. There
appears to be a toggle command for the RS232 port that will do it -- $Q# -- but this
command does not return anything and notice that it does not have the usual
preceding colon like all other LX200 commands do. If I am successful in implementing
this command, is there some simple way to check that PEC is either on or off? If anyone
has any experience with PEC that is relevant, I'd appreciate hearing from you ....
