It seems a few people are having a few issues with setup as I am. Here is my problem:
I installed the Celstron autofocuser on my EDGE HD 8 as per the instructions and several videos. This was quite simple.
Installed the driver on SGPro as well as the Celestron Utility program.
Ran calibration on Celestron Utility with 0-28000 steps identified.
Closed the Utility and opened SGPro. Setting any number of steps in other course or fine, IN or OUT causes the focuser to go to zero. Once there, none of the fine or course buttons work.
Disconnected Celestron mount and focuser and used utility with SGPro’s Frame and Focus. Was able to get focus as ~20000 with a Bahtinov mask. Closed Utility and connected mount (CGEM) and focuser in SGPro. Course and Fine don’t work and Go To doesn’t either. The Position number is the same as for the Celestron Utility and the HFR is about 2.5. Again, the focuser dials down to zero and on the odd occasion will dial back up and reverse on its on. Hitting STOP, shuts down the motor for a second or so and then it continues dialling down to zero, stops and no buttons will then work.
Exited SGPro and rebooted computer and went into SGPro only.
No luck with getting the to change the fine or course settings. The focuser dials down to zero, then stops and no further buttons can be activated.
Three nights later and still no progress in getting the focuser to work.
Very frustrating and perhaps a call to Celestron tech people is needed.
