Error message using Moonlite focus driver. was created by rishigarrod

Hi

I am using the Indi Moonlite focuser definition to drive my home built motor focuser using MyFocuserPro.
It works fine but I do get an error message each time I move the focuser. Can anyone tell me what the driver is expecting so I can modify the Arduino code to provide it.

2019-03-03T20:56:24: [INFO] Focuser reached requested position.
2019-03-03T20:56:24: [ERROR] Unknown error: isMoving value (1#)
2019-03-03T20:56:24: [INFO] Focuser is moving to position 1000

There is a parameter called Sync on the Main Control panel, what does this do. Is it for compensating for backlash?

Thanks

Rishi,
I tried the My FocuserPro at first & had a few issues with it, I then rebuilt it as the Hansastro version, the Hansastro version works very well with the indi Moonlite driver which I currently use for focusing, I've also done some testing with the Ardufocus version that also seems works well with the indi Moonlite driver. Just google either Hansastro or Ardufocus, there’s plenty of info on both out there.

Regards

A simple 2 line change to the driver code running on the Arduino solved it.
I have tested it through and it all works well. Now waiting for clear sky's to test it out.
