Hey guys I have been using SGP for about a year and a half and I love it! I recently bought a new telescope and I’m trying to set up an autofocus routine. I had an autofocus routine with my SCT that worked ok I guess. I followed the guide in the manual and the suggested steps were nowhere close to what they needed to be. I experimented with a bunch of different steps and it eventually passed, but I feel it could be better. Ive never really got a good “V” curve. Mine always looks a little flat and the first step sometimes goes up to make a little wing. Im currently using a Explorer Scientific 127MM refractor with the OEM focuser. Im using the Pegasus focus cube V2 to do the focus.
When I Subtract the “in-focus” focuser position from the new (current) focuser position. Multiply this
number by 2, divide it by the number of “Auto Focus Data Points” minus 1 I came up with 45. When I ran the focus routine the V curce was completely flat. After changing the steps to 150 my curve looks like the images below. So I guess my question Is my V curve ok? Am I doing something wrong? Could this be any better than it currently is running?
Thanks in advance!
