Celestron Focuser (again)


Thank you for your previous help about a go-to position for the Celestron focuser.

Having used the device some more I notice that the rotation speed of the focus motor is the same for each of the four buttons (forwards or backwards) in the GUI.
Is that common across ascom focusers or an issue only with the Celestron focuser?

This does make small, incremental moves quite difficult.

Also, is there a keyboard shortcut for focus move and focus halt?

BYE Premium  3.1.16


Many thanks,

ASCOM controls the position of moves, not the speed to get there. Because BYE uses ASCOM it can only tell the focuser where (how far) to move, not the motor speed.

I do not believe that there are keyboard shortcuts for focuser move or stop.

You should keep current by upgrading to BYE 3.1.17.
