Help!

I can run the auto focus routine once then the next time I try I get an error.

If I restart the skyx i can run the focus routine again, one time.

This appears to be a problem originating in the Software Bisque ASCOM driver when SGP is asking for the Sidereal Time. If so, you might want to consult with Software Bisque to see if they can help.
