I switched my imaging scopes yesterday. I put a Feathertouch focuser on my Newt and was setting it up tonight. I’m trying to autofocus and notice that the focus routine is moving the focuser (Rigel usb n-step) in the wrong direction. When running autofocus, its first motion is inward. If I check the “reverse direction” button in the focus tab it makes no difference. The focuser still moves inward when starting autofocus. I guess I don’t know that it matters for focusing but just wanted to bring it up. Seems that the reverse direction button isn’t functional with my focuser.
I tried checking the reverse direction box in the focuser driver and it just confused SGP because as it was moving in, the numbers were increasing and it wouldn’t stop.
