New on here so firstly a big hello.
I have been using Sgp for a fair few months now and am pretty pleased with it, especially the platesolve, the big main reason for buying after the trial, everything works well apart from the auto focus which I have spent an age over the last few months on and off trying to get to work as it should. I have a qsi583wsg mounted on a wogt81 and a lakeside autofocuser, I have measured that my focuser travel is 4418 steps over 20mm which if my maths are correct equates to .0045microns, using the Wilmslow page my cfz is .081microns which I believe means a step size of 18 steps, if I’m wrong someone please tell me.
I have tried anywhere between 5 steps and 80 steps, using a multitude of different size backlash too but I end up with a real rubbish graph, that doesn’t bother me but the fact that I can obtain better focus with the bhatinov mask than the autofocus routine does. most of the time it leaves me out of focus and I end up going back to re-adjust with the mask again.
Anyone got any ideas why? Hoping it may be something simple that I’ve possibly overlooked or perhaps someone has had the same issues. So much imaging time lost due to this it’s unreal and am beginning to loose patience with it.
Thanks in advance,
