I’m a happy SGP user since several years, but I always felt that it lacked a autofocus (AF) history feature. Particularly I would like the ability to view the AF info stored in log files after a nights session, such as AF focus position, best HFR, temperature, etc. throughout the night. Just like I review the nights PhD guiding with its log viewer.
So I went about and programmed a simple application that can read a SGP logfile and extract the AF data. The main output is simply a textbox filled with the relevant SGP AF messages (in raw format, unformatted by my application). The type of messages that are displayed are somewhat subjectively choosen by me! Then the application also shows a summary of all the complete AF runs found in a file. Here is a screenshot:
It is also possible to plot all the AF runs, or just a single one of them:
I suppose this could also be useful to others, so I have decided to attempt to “release” it. However, I AM NOT A DEVELOPER, so there is a real risk that this application wont install and/or work properly on some Win systems. I have tested it on all computers available to me, and I have also tested it using 10-15 logfiles that I have downloaded on this forum, and it all checked out. Also please bear in mind that I will not have time to provide a lot of support or make large changes to the application. The idea is to keep it as simple as possible.
The application can be downloaded here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/sgp-autofocus-logviewer/
Hope some of you will find it useful (and actually working :)!
