As we move toward breaking ground in version 2.5, we will be taking a hard look at algorithms used for auto focus. This will start, of course, with star (centroid) detection. As many of you know (especially if you own a scope with a secondary obstruction), SGPro does not handle detection well here (donut stars are detected as several smaller stars with a lower average HFD, then when the donut hole disappears, the HFD suddenly shoots up).
Anyhow… it would be very helpful to us if those of you who own gear capable of creating this type of data were able to share it with us for the development process. We provide an option to do this that is pretty painless, but you will need to upload and host them long enough for us to download them. Regardless of the success of the current method, we just need the data. To grab data from an AF run, go to AF settings, provide a path and check the box:
