I’m using a Rigel nSTEP focuser. I racked my SCT all the in and determined it took approx. 350k steps for full travel. I then used the nSTEP to bring the scope into focus at approx. 135k.
I thought that was the way to do it so I could easily switch the nSTEP motor from scope to scope by racking each scope, mounting the motor, and using the presets in the ascom driver bring each scope into focus as needed.
But if I have to disengage the motor I’ll do it, rather than give up the functionality of Offsets.
The ASCOM driver accepts the 350k number no problem, as well as my 135k preset.
It seems SGP has 6 digit ability because it will accept 100k, but add one more digit and it reverts to zero.
