Yep, I have no idea where the middle is,
when using the focus routine it doesn't give you any numbers, so you have no idea how far its moved, 

I used to be able to set the focus position above 200,000
I've definately manually entered 1,000,000 on a earlier version of kstars

I've been using my scopes with Kstars for over a year without this focus limit problem
this is a new problem after the last Kstars Update
I suppose I could try and downgrade Kstars.
I'll google how to do it.

Thanks for the help everyone,
I'll update if I find a fix that works.

Anyone know how to edit/build/install INDI Drivers

The way I read this, the problem lies in the Indi driver.  It seems to overwrite any input and sets the maximum position to 200,000.  
I think you could just add a 0 to that, so now the maximum position would be 2,000,000 and then recompile, as Andrew suggested.
Jasem, am I interpreting this code correctly?  I had to change the Arduino MoonLite code at the equivalent position to solve my problem with the max position.

In my earlier post, that I mostly retracted with a strike through, I did exactly that. Added a zero to make it 2,000,000 and compiled a version that should work on a raspberry pi 4, 32 bit system and attached it for him.
I'm not sure if it is compatible though, so he should backup the original driver first..

Hi, Thanks for the driver, I just tried it, but my OS is 64Bit Ubuntu, so it didn't work, what software do you use edit the driver files?

Thanks, Darren

Hi, sorry, my system doesn't recognise the driver.
here are my 64bit driver files if you can edit them?
No worries if not, thanks for your help.

No they can not be edited in that way. It must be recompiled from source.
I do not have the resources to make a version compatible with your system.
Either request and wait for an update to the driver, or look into compiling it yourself.
It's not too difficult to do yourself and can be handy to know how in the future.

Hi, thanks, I tried those drivers, they're not recognised. I just get an error message onscreen
The driver on my system is much smaller at 43k

Thanks, Darren
