So this is commits ff56157cceacc77e3b330a6618f431ca8cce7218 and e65a81989167794261cab73eaab10458cc1a983c

These commits makes the Celestron AVX unusable.

1. Not possible to sync mount at all. Alignment will fail, as sync fails. RA/Dec will be 12:00:00/00:00:00 and it is not possible to sync mount to anything.

I tested removing lines 241 + 244 in celestrongps.cpp and sync works again.

2. Mount does not hibernate....

Lines 568 + 570 571 reports that the mount failes to hibernate, witch is not true.

3. Mount does not wake from hibernation.

Removed lines 643 - 649 to get mount to wake from hibernation. (Driver reports wakeup but I will be testing later).

4. Further more, the scope does not sync to park position on wakeup from hibernation, witch makes no sense. It's synced to some where on the Dec 00:00:00 line. (Celestial equator?). Usually 24:00:00 / 00:00:00

There are also some changes that makes the park postion not calculate the Dec from Alt value, but simply reads the value in the Alt field as Dec (So I had to park at 196:00:00 / -28:00:00 To get close to 196:00:00 / 1:00:00

I will try to revert the celestrongps.cpp to the commit before the last three, and see if it fix the issues.
Or could I define some properties to the AVX to restore previous behavior?

I reverted to commit 781e4a2b01883ddc09710eaebdb94c704b3febe0 and the usual behavior is restored. (Except the strange Alt using raw Dec values for parking)

As to timeout on connect + wakeup, I do get those sometimes, but clicking connect once again works. Not a big issue for me now, but it would require connecting the driver manually before starting automation.

Just want to report that all is good again :)

I'm having some issues with parking, but I think its the Celestron AVX's settings for imaging past the meridian that's acting up.

All the issues I where having with the update is back in order :)
