      I speculate that the AP-1200 continuously saves its pointing data plus
      date/time in RAM or Flash memory, but I don't know for sure. I do know
      that when power is restored, a GOTO command finds the target from where
      the scope was pointing when power was shut off (as long as it wasn't
      moved while not powered).
