Hi Bob,

thanks for hanging in there. Here is the Ascom Conformance Test with the Dome itself. There are three errors at the end related to my problem: ie closing the shutter before it is "homed". However the driver homes the dome and then closes the shutter. End result "No Issues". Please see below. Where does this leave us? Ascom Ok, ACP Dome control opens and closes shutter....me buying ACP license. Any comments?

Kind regards,
Roelof
