Thanks for taking the time to reply and for the information.

Regarding the command set, this is what is referenced pertaining to pier side:

********************************************************
Command:“:pS#“:
Response:"0“ East, “1” West.
This command returns the side of the pier on which the telescope is currently positioned. It is useful
for remote observatories whe re it is not possible for the viewer to see the mount. Initially, the
mount must be manually positioned on the proper pier side for the calibration object and cali brated
using the :CM# command.


Command: “:CM#“:
Response: “1"
Calibrate mount (Sync).
If in equatorial mounts or in RA DEC mode with Alt Azi mounts, Current
Right Ascension and Declination become the commanded Right Ascension and Declination
respectively. If in Alt Azi mode (only works with Alt Azi mounts), then the commanded Altitude
and Azimuth become the current. This command assumes that the mount has been manually
positioned on the proper pier side for the calibration object. This command is ignored if slewing is
in progress. This command should be used for initi al calibration. It should not be used after the
mount has been tracking unless it is known that it has not tracked across the meridian.
********************************************************

I do not see any mention of the ":GEP#" command.

Thanks again!
