I have a Focus Lynx focuser that I have used in the past. I recently added another focuser board and got a new motor (duplicate of one I already have).
- The PDM motor step size is 2.3microns, but the sgp log file reports 1,xx microns
- With a step size of 100, I can always reliably get to focus using @focus3 from The SkyX
3 I have tried 100 to 125 step size, and the autofocus from SGP is unable to reach focus. I get a message to the effect that “we are lost, moving to best guess focus” and image is visibly out of focus.
a) Why is SGP asking for a step size from the autofocuser instead of the user? Perhaps there is a Fw bug in the motor or its controller that give in correct step size.
b) I tried various step sizes with the control panel. The CP was successful with autofocus of 125 but when I added to an equipment profile (and saved if ofcourse), I could not get the same results, Why?
c) Now I am lost, please suggest next steps.
