Namespace:  ASCOM.DeviceInterface
Assembly:  ASCOM.DeviceInterfaces (in ASCOM.DeviceInterfaces.dll) Version: 3351c4f3fa64146a7efd5b51ed4591e32a0a5484
bool AtPark { get; }

Property Value

Type: Boolean
NotConnectedExceptionIf the device is not connected
DriverExceptionAn error occurred that is not described by one of the more specific ASCOM exceptions. Include sufficient detail in the message text to enable the issue to be accurately diagnosed by someone other than yourself.

Must be implemented, must not throw a PropertyNotImplementedException.

AtPark is True when the telescope is in the parked state. This is achieved by calling the Park method. When AtPark is true, the telescope movement is stopped (or restricted to a small safe range of movement) and all calls that would cause telescope movement (e.g. slewing, changing Tracking state) must not do so, and must raise an error.

The telescope is taken out of parked state by calling the Unpark method. If the telescope cannot be parked, then AtPark must always return False.

This is only available for telescope InterfaceVersions 2 and later.
