Focuser back to zero at end of sequence

Hi to all the team!
Is it possible to add a « back to zero » for the focuser at the end of the sequence?
Thank’s and have a nice day.

I second that!

Every night I have to manually send the focuser to zero position so for me it will be a nice addition to the end of Sequence procedures

I support this too. Maybe with the possibility of storing the last focus setting and a quick return to that position the next imaging session.

I’ll go for that too as part of the End of Sequence Options so everyone has the choice to use or not.

Further to Allenk’s point:-
The pain of a manual bahtinov mask procedure ! ! !. Every time I image, which has not been a lot lately due to house renovations, I make a note of the focus position which was successful for auto focus along with the temp and it works perfectly for initial focus position to start off 99.9% of the time.

For Full automation - It’s a must

If I may ask, what is the definition of “zero position” in terms of a focuser? Is it the position where the draw tube is fully in? Or the position of the focuser at the start of the sequence? If the former, why is it necessary/preferable to move the focuser to a zero position at the end of a sequence?

Zero position is fully in.
If you don’t have a permanent setting or an observatory you have to désassemble your rig to bring it back in your house and it’s easier.
