I tired for the first time to use my lakeside autofocuser to run an autofocus routine. It doesn’t seem to want to sync its position with SGPro.
When I open the focus tab on the control panel, it states ‘current position 0’ when the focuser itself is displaying its true position on its display. And when I run autofocus, I get an error message saying ‘current focuser position does not support required range. Currently at 0 and needs to move inwards by 30’
Some guidance would be very welcome.
Thanks very much.
The log file reported this:
