Any plans to support FocusMax in the near future?
I really like SGP and I’ve used it for a couple of years with good success until I entered the world of fast newtonians. For refractors SGP focusing algorithm always worked fine. However for with my Epsilon 160 f/3.3 and my Generic 12inch f/4 newtonian SGP focusing algorithm was a hit a miss. I thought that my issues were caused by poor focuser mechanics until I tested FM.
While I love the idea of focusing on target, I found FM very reliable and repeatable with any of my telescopes, regardless of the collimation (slightly out of collimation) and seeing.
FM can deal with centering, plate solving etc, so adding basic support should (without knowing anything about your code) not be so difficult to implement. Just leave the control to FM, wait for FM to do its thing, resume were you left prior focusing.
FM is very robust and it looks like most focusing corner cases are already sorted out.
Please give some thought to.
