Move the telescope to its park position, stop all motion (or restrict to a small safe range), and set AtPark to True.

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

Syntax

C#
void Park()
Visual Basic
Sub Park
Visual C++
void Park()

Remarks

Raises an error if there is a problem communicating with the telescope or if parking fails. Parking should put the telescope into a state where its pointing accuracy will not be lost if it is power-cycled (without moving it).Some telescopes must be power-cycled before unparking. Others may be unparked by simply calling the Unpark()()()() method. Calling this with AtPark = True does nothing (harmless)

Exceptions

ExceptionCondition
MethodNotImplementedExceptionIf the method is not implemented and CanPark is False
