Richard -- 100% on your reaponse. I don't kkow why that setting in the Bisque system seems to get turned off. It may be an old wives' tale, but it might be running T-Point models or otherwise using TheSKy outaide of its usage as a control system for the bisque mounts and offering an ASCOM interface to same. Or maybe those people are using some other 3rd party software that sneaks in to the Bisque settings storage and turns it off???? I just don't know.
