Motor Focus Step Value


NeilW

Question

Hi,

 

Is it possible to change the default step values for motorised focusing? For instance, the maxiumum is 500, but as I have the motor attached to the fine focus axis of my crayford focuser, 500 only results in a very small movement of the focuser. And I don't suppose there's any way to "go to" a particular focuser position with an absolute focus motor?

 

Regards,

 

Neil.

Hi Neil,

 

This is no goto command right now, though that would be easy to implement.  You should make a suggestion in the suggestion forum, this is where I go when I have time to spare.  Feature request in the support thread simply gets buried over time :(

 

You can not change the steps in BYE/BYN, but the control is long-press sensitive.  If you keep pressing on the controls it will just go until you release. 

 

On my Moonlite focuser ASCOM properties I can change the step size, not sure if your motor focuser has those properties.

 

Regards,
