Script using CURRENTSTEPPERS.RAStepsCurrent / CURRENTSTEPPERS.DEStepsCurrent was created by jrsphoto
I've been playing with some shell scripts to automate things, mostly trying to get a better understanding of how scripting works. I've downloaded a few scripts to do startup/shutdown things and the shutdown scripts are using CURRENTSTEPPERS.RAStepsCurrent" AND "CURRENTSTEPPERS.DEStepsCurrent" to tell if the mount is parked.
However, it seems that these parameters do not exist in the Telescope Simulator driver? I'm trying to get things working in a simulated environment and then test it on my real equipment when everything working. Is there another way to determine if the scope is parked that would work in the Telescope simulator and real hardware, in my case, the LX200_OnStep driver.

I was looking at the list of standard properties which are supposed to be supported, but some, such as the TIME_LST aren't supported by the Telescope Simulator. Am I missing something here or is the Telescope Simulator just that limited?
