900GTO Safety Zone

As a 900GTO newbie, I'm slowly getting comfortable with this

excellent mount. There is one thing puzzling me.



I see in the safety zone setup that a number of degrees is entered.

Can anyone help me understand what angle is referred to? Is this the

angle between the pier and the telescope when the telescope is trying

to go vertical?



I assume this is calculated in firmware from the RA/DEC readings and

the longitude and latitude of the observing location.



Or is it something else entirely?



Thanks for any info.



John
