In a previous topic Ken said "I don’t really know anything about this focuser so I can’t speak directly to it. That said…
SGPro will work with any focuser if…
•The focuser reports itself as absolute (even if it is a relative focuser in disguise)
•The focuser is accurate enough to return to the exact same spot as reported during a focus run"
How do I do this? Shoestring’s FCUSB is on the focuser list, but when I tried to connect, I received a message that SGP did not support relative focusers. I don’t know how to make it report itself as an absolute focuser.
However, I don’t mind manually focusing, but would like SGP to output an HFR metric that I could use. Currently, I’m using “frame and focus” in Nebulosity for focus, then switching to SGP. The fine focus metric in Neb is as good or better than a mask and I don’t need to slew to a bright star. The SGP HFR, if available, would be better.
