Initialization of Sesto Senso

When i again go from 20000 to 25000 it is no longer in focus. i can say just total out of focus.
What can be the reason of this behaviour?
If you have the chance try your exact setup with the Primaluce Windows tool (you can do it at daytime - just focus on a belltower or anything similar reasonably far away) if the focus point is fix regardless of the focussing motion than it's perhaps an INDI related problem - if the problem persists, read on
I'd suppose it is a mechanical problem.
First of all it seems to be some kind of backlash problem to me. Get sure, that you have a tight mechanical connection of the shafts of your SestoSenso and the focuser.
On the other hand don't overtighten the fixation of the Sesto housing at the outer barrel of your focuser.
Get the friction right and reassure, that no fixation-screw is accidentally tightened.
I hope you'll get it working soon...

What about when you control from the focuser tab within Ekos...? As that’s where to control it from...
Skywatcher EQ8 pro
Meade series 5000 80mm triplet Apo & Meade 8” SCT (de-forked)
Starlight Xpress SXVR H18, SXVR M25c, Lodestar Guide Camera
Pegasus Ultimate Hub for all USB & Power
Pegasus focus motors on both scopes
I have the same problem ...each time I switch off the "sento senso", Ekos forget the endpoint and replace it by the current position value . I use a PC (nuc Intel) under Ubuntu 18.04.
Only solution : connect it under Win10, and make a new "calibration"...
Is there another work around ?
Thanks a lot.
And...congrats and thanks a lot for the great job you do on Indi !
