Sets or returns the Julian date on the UTC timescale for which the transform will be made

Namespace: ASCOM.Astrometry.Transform
Assembly: ASCOM.Astrometry (in ASCOM.Astrometry.dll) Version: 6.0.0.0 (6.1.1.2619)

Syntax

C#
public double JulianDateUTC { get; set; }
Visual Basic
Public Property JulianDateUTC As Double
	Get
	Set
Visual C++
public:
virtual property double JulianDateUTC {
	double get () sealed;
	void set (double value) sealed;
}

Field Value

Julian date (UTC) of the transform

Return Value

UTC Julian date that will be used by Transform or zero if the PC's current clock value will be used to calculate the Julian date.

Implements

ITransform..::..JulianDateUTC

Remarks

Introduced in April 2014 as an alternative to JulianDateTT. Only one of JulianDateTT or JulianDateUTC needs to be set. Use whichever is more readily available, there is no need to set both values. Transform will use the last set value of either JulianDateTT or JulianDateUTC as the basis for its calculations.
