Remarks

Optional property, can throw a PropertyNotImplementedException when the DewPoint property also throws a PropertyNotImplementedException.

Mandatory property, must NOT throw a PropertyNotImplementedException when the DewPoint property is implemented.

The ASCOM specification requires that DewPoint and Humidity are either both implemented or both throw PropertyNotImplementedExceptions. It is not allowed for one to be implemented and the other to throw a PropertyNotImplementedException. The Utilities component contains methods (DewPoint2Humidity(Double, Double) and Humidity2DewPoint(Double, Double)) to convert DewPoint to Humidity and vice versa given the ambient temperature.
