ASCOM Device Management Suggestion


The current behavior (BYE 3.1.7) is to make the Focuser the active device when switching between camera modes (F&F, Imaging, Planetary, Drift Align). I would like to see that behavior changed so that

1) the telescope is the default device rather than the focuser, and

2) that the active device does not change when the camera mode changes.  What I mean by that is that whatever the active device if I change BYE's camera mode from Frame & Focus to Imaging that same device is still active.


One user actually thought that their telescope was disconnected because they switched from F&F to Imaging and the active device was switched to the focuser!
