Autofocus routine based on temp


#1

It seems autofocus routine runs without taking temp into account.

Say I image last night at 10c ambient. Focuser at 10000.

I start tonight, at 15c ambient. Focuser is still at 10000 (from last night). Autofocus routine runs, then figures it ain’t close, overcorrects, runs again, determines it ain’t close, then moves back again, and finally is able to complete. But like 20-30 images. Say ends up at position 13000.

Why not store previous autofocus points relative to temp and build a model, so when routine starts up at the beginning of a sequence, it knows to move close to autofocus point for that temp and begin the routine from there?

Not a big deal when the temp is consistent, but when there are big swings day to day… … … …
