IDomeV2 Properties

The IDomeV2 type exposes the following members.

Properties
  NameDescription
Public propertyAltitude
The altitude (degrees, horizon zero and increasing positive to 90 zenith) of the part of the sky that the observer wishes to observe.
Public propertyAtHome

when the dome is in the home position. Raises an error if not supported.

This is normally used following a FindHome operation. The value is reset with any azimuth slew operation that moves the dome away from the home position.

AtHome may optionally also become true during normal slew operations, if the dome passes through the home position and the dome controller hardware is capable of detecting that; or at the end of a slew operation if the dome comes to rest at the home position.

Public propertyAtPark
if the dome is in the programmed park position.
Public propertyAzimuth
The dome azimuth (degrees, North zero and increasing clockwise, i.e., 90 East, 180 South, 270 West). North is true north and not magnetic north.
Public propertyCanFindHome
if driver can perform a search for home position.
Public propertyCanPark
if the driver is capable of parking the dome.
Public propertyCanSetAltitude
if driver is capable of setting dome altitude.
Public propertyCanSetAzimuth
if driver is capable of rotating the dome (or controlling the roof mechanism) in order to observe at a given azimuth.
Public propertyCanSetPark
if the driver can set the dome park position.
Public propertyCanSetShutter
if the driver is capable of opening and closing the shutter or roof mechanism.
Public propertyCanSlave
if the dome hardware supports slaving to a telescope.
Public propertyCanSyncAzimuth
if the driver is capable of synchronizing the dome azimuth position using the SyncToAzimuth(Double) method.
Public propertyConnected
Set to connect to the device hardware. Set to disconnect from the device hardware. You can also read the property to check whether it is connected. This reports the current hardware state.
Public propertyDescription
Returns a description of the device, such as manufacturer and model number. Any ASCII characters may be used.
Public propertyDriverInfo
Descriptive and version information about this ASCOM driver.
Public propertyDriverVersion
A string containing only the major and minor version of the driver.
Public propertyInterfaceVersion
The interface version number that this device supports. Should return 2 for this interface version.
Public propertyName
The short name of the driver, for display purposes
Public propertyShutterStatus
Gets the status of the dome shutter or roof structure.
Public propertySlaved
if the dome is slaved to the telescope in its hardware, else .
Public propertySlewing
if any part of the dome is currently moving, if all dome components are stationary.
Public propertySupportedActions
Returns the list of custom action names supported by this driver.
