Autofocus and Filter Changes SBIG CFW8


#1

I have an old ST-8 with a CFW8. When I activate the toggle to focus after a change in filter (hopefully using the right term), the focus routine starts before each and every image. No other toggles are active. I have checked this a couple of times.

It is like the CFW8 resets or sends a trigger to SGP that the filter has changed each and every image, thus triggering an AF event even though the filter does not move. It is like the wheel is sending a message as to which filter it is using, and even though the filter has not changed SGP sees the filter statement and starts AF. I am thinking that maybe I need to get into each event and focus before instead of toggling the AF focus after filter change.

Thanks in advance for any help
