The local apparent sidereal time from the telescope's internal clock (hours, sidereal)

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

Syntax

C#
public double SiderealTime { get; }
Visual Basic
Public ReadOnly Property SiderealTime As Double
	Get
Visual C++
public:
virtual property double SiderealTime {
	double get () sealed;
}

Implements

ITelescopeV3..::..SiderealTime

Remarks

It is required for a driver to calculate this from the system clock if the telescope has no accessible source of sidereal time. Local Apparent Sidereal Time is the sidereal time used for pointing telescopes, and thus must be calculated from the Greenwich Mean Sidereal time, longitude, nutation in longitude and true ecliptic obliquity.
