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).
