Hi,Not sure if I have a setting incorrectly set, with the issue being that autofocus on filter change isn’t being kicked off in a specific situation.
I have the following focus options set (the others are unchecked):
- Autofocus every 1 degree
- Autofocus on filter change
- Autofocus before sequent start
- Autofocus after automatic centering option
When going through a list of events normally, that is in order, autofocus seems to be kicked off with filter changes as it should.
But sometimes, I’ll pause and then uncheck the run box of an event (maybe too much moon light) and check the run box of an event that was unfinished but prior to the paused event in the list. I use the run box to force the order of events sometimes (and keep all others unchecked. In one case, too much moonlight and I wanted to force it to start running my narrowband captures which was previous on the list.
When I resumed, it changed the filter, in this case from luminosity to Ha, and started capturing without focusing. I had to pause and abort, and do force auto focus from the autofocus button.
So that’s one case. In another case I am taking a large number of images, and have to pause in the middle because it’s the end of the night or whatever. And the next day I resume, restart the sequence, and it doesn’t start with an autofocus. I thought, previously it would always autofocus at the beginning of a new session, when it’s a new night, and of course temperature will be different, etc… This seems to be a recent change because I haven’t changed my settings. So I had to force another focus from the focus button.
I do not have autofocus on resume set, but don’t recall that needing to be set to force an autofocus of a continued imaging session on a totally different day. There are many reasons I might pause a session, and don’t check the autofocus on resume because I don’t want to add autofocus in all situations when I pause.
