Function of Synch and Set Homeposition commands



I am having a little trouble getting my head around the synch command in Sequence and the set home position command in autoslew.

I believe that the set home position command in autoslew tells the mount that the Ra/Dec coordinates it is currently at are correct and correspond to whatever points the encoders are currently pointing at.  From that information, when given an RA/DEC coordinate pair, the mount software can translate that into encoder positions and slew there.  Is this correct?

What then does the synch command do in autoslew?  ANd what does the synch command do in Sequence?


Happy to read explanations in the documentation if anyone can point me to where to look.  Otherwise would be grateful for any learning someone can share.
