TOPIC: Manual Focusing

Manual Focusing 3 months 3 weeks ago #25559

Do you mean adding a tool which is something like this??

I think that would be a great idea for people that dont have autofocusing.

Whenever I (try to) focus my camera with a Bahtinov mask, I use the preview function of Ekos. It would be a great help if the preview window, that pops up, would have a zoom function. Or, if it already has one, if I knew how to use it :)

You mean looping? you can zoom with mouse wheel... or you are talking about something else?

I am talking about the Preview button when taking an image with the main camera, right next to the Live View button. I am not using a mouse so there is no mouse button. I'll try swiping up and down with two fingers to see if that works. I tried + and - and they don't work IIRC.

I finally had a chance to try this and unfortunately swiping up or down with two fingers on my MacBook while running Ekos on a Raspberry Pi3 and connecting via VNC doesn’t work. So my request remains: could you please add keyboard shortcuts to zoom in on the preview screen so I can try to reach better focus when using a Bahtinov mask? Many thanks in advance!!!

Hi. I'm not sure if this is the same thing but even if you can zoom easily, it's not possible to focus:
