When autofocus pick a galaxy... #44114
How in the world should I proceed? It's in the scheduler workflow... so, would I normally abort? I'm going to let it do it's thing, as we say, and see the first Luminance frame, but wow, I had already brought everything to a fairly decent focus- I just though it reasonable to make sure that autofocus would work with the entire flow, which is sort of necessary for long(er) sessions and/or multiple targets and/or refocusing, generally. I realize there might not be a method to avoid this per se, but how would you proceed? I'm just curious, when it comes down to it. It came within 10 steps of my actual "manual" autofocus, so I guess it was acceptable for NGC 7331.

This is my first schedule/sequence with my entire setup, running completely remote. I couldn't be more excited about it- sort of shocked that I'm at this point. Clouds will be here within 1-2hrs, however, but hey, I made it! ....so far :)

Change algorithm to SEP? the galaxy core issue is actually known in the regular algorithm.
