OAG users: AF before PHD Calibration


#1

This is resurrecting something we discussed last year. Not so much a feature request as a fine tuning of focusing strategy at the start-up sequence. Everything starts up fine, but it assumes the autoguider is in focus when you start a sequence.

It would be useful to have the option to set the focus position to the filter table position when the equipment starts a sequence - which makes startup even easier.

For those of us with OAGs, it would be useful too if the AF routine (if enabled) jumps in before any Autoguider routine calibrates, (after slewing and before centering). Currently the AF routine works after the autoguider calibrates.
What do you think?

Buzz, a very similar issue came up yesterday in this thread.
