I would like to offer a ‘me too’ to this request.
The reason being, for the first time a few days ago, I wanted to set up SGP and my imaging system to start a sequence at a time that I was not going to by present. I have not done this before, but because there was no way of getting it to run the autofocus before the autocentering, I had to do the initial focus on a bright star in daylight. Not easy to do, but I did manage it. It would be far easier if the option of “Auto focus before sequence start” which is already in the Auto Focus Options, did actually do this ‘Before’ the sequence start as this option implies.
As I did manage to get the initial focus, the sequence worked wonderfully and on my return I found a set of subs in perfect focus Great software, keep up the good work.
