The telescope operating display

The telescope operating display (Fig. 16) gives the sky coordinates (current equinox!), at which the telescope actually points. Below the coordinates sidereal and universal time are given. Telescope positioning can be controlled by hour angle and telescope height. Telescope and dome azimuth, and telescope focus are given in the bottom windows of the display. Azimuth 0$^{\circ}$ is the direction towards the south. The parking position of the dome is at azimuth 340$^{\circ}$.
