I don't recall anything specific, but I may have mentioned that I want to tweak the ASCOM driver to try and further improve the accuracy of the slews further. This is related to my calculation of the time it takes to actually do the slew so that the term I use to calculate the Slew Target RA value is better. Currently the final position is good to around 3 or 4 seconds in RA (45 to 60 arc-seconds). I would like to get this to within 1 second of RA (15 arc-seconds). I have that on my todo list of things to tackle.
