SGP has been working beautifully!..thanks for producing such a great piece of software!.
Inexplicably half way into the imaging session I started receiving sequence warning messages for “smart focus failed…too many range shifts”…“focus cannot be determined”.
Happened a few times (but one) when focusing in between filter changes.
No clouds, clear night, happens when SGP is about to finish a normal “V” curve and actually achieving good focusing ( 0.7, 0.9, etc)…then right by the last couple auto focus exposures warnings start and the focusing sessions re-start all over again ( when actually good focus was already achieved).
Focusing as usual with my light pollution filter, clear night, same setup and imaging/focusing settings used w/o issues in prior nights, BUT I made a small change in the position of the scope/camera in the mount to re-balance the weight ( 1/4 inch or so). But I didn’t touch the focuser or moved the camera relatively to the scope.
Takahashi refractor, feather touch focuser, imaging at F/6.
AF settings obtained using the recommended procedure in the SGP help section. Focuser looks tight mechanically, no play, scope balanced, sub arc second tracking, etc.
What I’m doing wrong this time?..thanks!!
