Pulled and built from the 11/2 git repositories. I've seen this behavior in prior builds.

I have 3 jobs in the scheduler. All are using the track, focus, align, and guide steps. I can't say that this won't happen for each job - it may, it may not.

What happens is this:

- Telescope slews
- Focusing runs - I have all filters locked to focus on the L filter, so in all cases I should be focusing with L
- Align takes over, decides to shift to the L filter, sends back to focus because of a perceived change
- Focus happens again
- Align takes over again, this time succeeds
- Guiding calibrates and starts
- Image run ensues.

The message I get from the align module is:
2018-11-05T22:47:34 Auto focus on filter change...
2018-11-05T22:47:32 Changing filter to L...

UPDATE: Ran again, had the same thing happen. The focuser was already on the L filter when it went to Align, but Align seemed to think a filter change needed to happen anyway.

Thanks for reporting. You mean the alignment module doesn't check, or doesn't understand that it requires the same filter as the one already set, before requesting a filter change, correct?

I think that sums it up nicely. Focus runs with the L filter, completes. Then the alignment module tries to run, changes the filter to L (which its already on), and decides focusing is needed due to the filter change. It then sends you back to the focus module.
