The ITelescopeV3 type exposes the following members.
The alignment mode of the mount (Alt/Az, Polar, German Polar).
The Altitude above the local horizon of the telescope's current position (degrees, positive up)
The area of the telescope's aperture, taking into account any obstructions (square meters)
The telescope's effective aperture diameter (meters)
True if the telescope is stopped in the Home position. Set only following a FindHome operation, and reset with any slew operation. This property must be False if the telescope does not support homing.
True if the telescope has been put into the parked state by the seee Park method. Set False by calling the Unpark() method.
The azimuth at the local horizon of the telescope's current position (degrees, North-referenced, positive East/clockwise).
True if this telescope is capable of programmed finding its home position (FindHome method).
True if this telescope is capable of programmed parking (Parkmethod)
True if this telescope is capable of software-pulsed guiding (via the PulseGuide(GuideDirections, Int32) method)
True if the DeclinationRate property can be changed to provide offset tracking in the declination axis.
True if the guide rate properties used for PulseGuide(GuideDirections, Int32) can ba adjusted.
True if this telescope is capable of programmed setting of its park position (SetPark method)
True if the SideOfPier property can be set, meaning that the mount can be forced to flip.
True if the RightAscensionRate property can be changed to provide offset tracking in the right ascension axis.
True if the Tracking property can be changed, turning telescope sidereal tracking on and off.
True if this telescope is capable of programmed slewing (synchronous or asynchronous) to equatorial coordinates
True if this telescope is capable of programmed slewing (synchronous or asynchronous) to local horizontal coordinates
True if this telescope is capable of programmed asynchronous slewing to local horizontal coordinates
True if this telescope is capable of programmed asynchronous slewing to equatorial coordinates.
True if this telescope is capable of programmed synching to equatorial coordinates.
True if this telescope is capable of programmed synching to local horizontal coordinates
True if this telescope is capable of programmed unparking (Unpark method).
Set True to connect to the device hardware. Set False to disconnect from the device hardware. You can also read the property to check whether it is connected. This reports the current hardware state.
The declination (degrees) of the telescope's current equatorial coordinates, in the coordinate system given by the EquatorialSystem property. Reading the property will raise an error if the value is unavailable.
The declination tracking rate (arcseconds per SI second, default = 0.0)
Returns a description of the device, such as manufacturer and modelnumber. Any ASCII characters may be used.
True if the telescope or driver applies atmospheric refraction to coordinates.
Descriptive and version information about this ASCOM driver.
A string containing only the major and minor version of the driver.
Equatorial coordinate system used by this telescope (e.g. Topocentric or J2000).
The telescope's focal length, meters
The current Declination movement rate offset for telescope guiding (degrees/sec)
The current Right Ascension movement rate offset for telescope guiding (degrees/sec)
The interface version number that this device supports. Should return 3 for this interface version.
True if a PulseGuide(GuideDirections, Int32) command is in progress, False otherwise
The short name of the driver, for display purposes
The right ascension (hours) of the telescope's current equatorial coordinates, in the coordinate system given by the EquatorialSystem property
The right ascension tracking rate offset from sidereal (seconds per sidereal second, default = 0.0)
Indicates the pointing state of the mount.
The local apparent sidereal time from the telescope's internal clock (hours, sidereal)

The geodetic(map) latitude (degrees, positive North, WGS84) of the site at which the telescope is located.
The longitude (degrees, positive East, WGS84) of the site at which the telescope is located.
True if telescope is in the process of moving in response to one of the Slew methods or the MoveAxis(TelescopeAxes, Double) method, False at all other times.
Specifies a post-slew settling time (sec.).
Returns the list of custom action names supported by this driver.
The declination (degrees, positive North) for the target of an equatorial slew or sync operation
The right ascension (hours) for the target of an equatorial slew or sync operation
The state of the telescope's sidereal tracking drive.
The current tracking rate of the telescope's sidereal drive
The UTC date/time of the telescope's internal clock
