The new concept of park position for GEM: Now, the HA park position specified on config window is simply the position of the mount axle: zero is "telescope up, counterweight down" position, +90 is "telescope west, counterweight east", and -90 is "telescope east, counterweight west". The park position range is now limited from -90 to +90 degrees (-180 to +180 does not makes sense for GEM anymore). Now, in config window, You must choose the pierside of park position.
