When you look at the Explorestars app, you will see the OTA alt and Az. These should be changing if the scope is tracking an object in the sky. Similarly, if tracking, the RA/DEC position of the OTA should be constant. If the scope is stationary, the OTA RA will be changing and the alt and Az will be constant.
