Hi,

if my memory is correct, i might have faced this issue a few month ago. in the log, i can see thisit happened when i pasted the index files in the folder (from a backup) instead of downloading them from the Align option window. If you had downloaded them, i am wrong and i don't what happens there. Maybe some more experiment users may answer better or propose some others solutions.

I see one point that could lead to some questions : if the guide is not exactly aligned with the primary scope or DSLR, the alignement might not be ok ? I am not sure at all, but i would say yes. Maybe someone else could better answer this question.

Hi Paul,

So for me the Focus module runs well except the autofocus process, but i have not really tested it in the field. I have only tested it at home in a big town, without any mount. To sum up, up to now,i can focus in and out with the command but the autofocus routine does not work properly for fl around 55 50 and 45mm. But that's not really relevant as i have not tried it yet in the field, on a mount and under a good dark night. And i am not really familiar with the routine and its settings.

Thanks Kevin, you solved my problem. The issue comes from the custom setting fn. 10 (shutter/AE lock button) to 1 (AE lock/AF). I had never really cared about this setting, i remember picking it up from somewhere on a forum.

About the M mode, i always set it to Manual.

Thanks again

Hi everybody, i want to try some wide-field astrophotos with my canon 450D and the original lens (FL 18-55mm). But there is a limitation with the autofocus.

If i want to focus in and out using Ekos (Focus module), i have to set the autofocus on AF mode on the lens, this works well. But then i can't trigger capture because the camera autofocus gets confused with the dark. On the other hand, if i set the autofocus mode to Manual, i can capture but the focus routine of EKOS can't run as the lens can't be focused remotly with the focus module.

I have tried to find out a way or a setting to let the AF mode on the lens, without the camera autofocus, without success.

So my question is : do you know a way to do that, a setting in the camera or something else ?

Photos are being loaded.

Yes indeed, and i had already found this solution, but thanks for the reply.

Thank you for the reply.

I had already filled these fields but it seems there's no way to use this "lens" in EKOS. The only way i found is to have another telescope configuration with a focal length of 2xFL of the telescope.

First i'd like to say i am very impressed by all the good work done for INDI and EKOS. I started astrophotgraphy for 6 months now, and after many tries and search, i finally found these powerful tool for imaging. Day after day, i discover all the great potential of all the tool and feature of the librairy.

So here is my question about the use of Barlow, i can not find the way to add a barlow in the Ekos or Indi control panel (apart change the focal length in the Telescope settings). This setting would obvioulsy apply some math in FOV and astrometry, and so on. And I know that barlow will increase the F/D, which is not good for photo, but i'd like to test.

Is there already a feature like this?
