I am willing to fund an issuehunt.io to fix the focus problem.  I would really like this issue fixed.

Thanks.

Created an issue on invent.kde.org for this.  Hopefully it's an easy fix.

Same here. When I use my 10" RC or my 9.25 EdgeHD I get HFR values that are larger than my lower F number scopes. HFR is directly related to Focal Ratio. The larger the Focal Ratio the bigger the HFR values.

But I do get inconsistent HFR values, I end us using the 2 or 3 frame average, this makes focusing 2 or 3 times longer, but at least I get somewhat good focus.

I do agree that the Focus routine works much better at 200-600mm Focal Lengths, once you start going deep, focus becomes more problematic.

Yes, I have the same issue. I hope the fix gets integrated into the main code.

I can confirm the windows build also has the same issue.

Best place to do a calculation on DEC backlash is to do it when the DEC goes from DEC OUT to DEC IN. The difference between those two would give you the backlash value you would need to take it out, if your mount had that capability.

Ok, so I finished testing the new driver and it is now applied to the GITHUB for INDI.

So, a couple of questions:

1 - Is your setup using a Raspberry Pi or Ubuntu remotely to control you setup?

2 - Do you have SSH installed and tuned on?

3 - Do you have access to root and it's password?

If you have these you can build / install from GITHUB. It sounds scary, but it's not at all. I can help you get it installed if you need help.

Let me know.

Well you can download his forked distribution and then compile it on your Raspberry Pi.

Otherwise you would have to wait until it is added to the repository and you can do an APT update command.

Do you have experience with Linux?
