Personally, I would prefer to establish a mechanical reference when powering the telescope mount back up using the HOME sensors. In my implementation, they are opto-interrupters with a few microns of repeatibility error. On the other hand (based on my understanding which could be mistaken) the designers of Onstep chose to base the PARK/UNPARK operaton on an assumption that the mount and the relationship of the telescope to the mount did not change between power on and power off sessions.Think this should work in release-4.24 ...
Just find this line in OnStep.ino:
VLF("MSG: OnStep is ready"); VL("");
Then add this one under it:
Having the mount do an un-commanded rapid motion on startup is not a feature I will be adding.
I understand the appeal of (the option for) doing a home operation before the first Goto and that doesn't seem especially worrisome to me, just takes more effort to stage the events so not trivial and so not something I'll add to 4.24.
