Changing focal length setting #24448
I have an existing equipment profile set up that is working successfully. When I do an align, the astrometry software says the calculated focal length is actually 635mm instead of the 600mm it is assumed to be. I wanted to change the setting to 635mm to see if that would improve the astrometry speed. I have been unable to find any way to adjust the length that is permanent.

Can anyone explain what you need to change in order to permanently change a focal length setting for an existing profile.

Hello,
I change my differents equipments in the Indi Panel, mount tab, and option tab.
Here you can define, several profiles with a diameter and a focal length for the primary equipment, and a diameter and a focal length for the guide equipment,
Then you set the values and save.
Perhaps there is a better solution, but I don't know.

When I set the focal length that way it gives an error and does not change the setting. I tried on the mount control page and that holds until i disconnect and it goes back the 600mm setting when connecting again.

I will post a fuller description when I have access to the equipment again.

Are you selecting a telescope in your profile? then simply edit the telescope info or add a new one.

Jasem,
Thanks, you have solved it.
I had forgotten that I set it up there.
