Trouble with Sesto Senso focuser and Ekos

Hello,

I have problems with my Sesto Senso focuser and the Ekos focus module.

1) While making the calibration of the focuser the "moving out" and "moving in" buttons are (sometimes) reversed. But maybe that's normal (after calibration the buttons in Ekos Module are not reversed) ?
2) The step number (the current position of the focuser) does not seem to be updated at the right time. In the GOTO control I need to click 2 times to see the right position.
3) There is a problem when I use the "focus in" and "focus out" buttons in order to move a precise number of step in or out two times in a row. The focuser doesn't go to the right position.
4) I tried to test the Autofocus mode with CCD simulator so I ran the mode and select a star. Then the HFR is calculated for the current position but nothing happens after (the focuser don't move to another position).

Thanks for your help !

IIRC, this issue is solved in GIT and nightly releases.

Hello Jasem,

Thanks for the answer. You are probably referring to github.com/indilib/indi/issues/1443 ?
Nevertheless, these corrections were made for sesto senso 2 and not for sesto senso 1 (the one I'm using)... but maybe I'm wrong ? (I'm not quite familiar with Github)

Thanks a lot !
How can I try it ? Should I switch to "Beta" in the control panel and that's all ?

yes you can do that, or use the SM App in the Device tab to switch to Beta channel.
