Mine arrived today and indeed it works like a charm. One question though: I have the advanced version with temperature sensor. In the INDI Control Panel I see the temperature of the sensor. How can I refocus with every 2 degree Celcius temperature difference? I don't think that's possible, right?

I haven't seen an option in EKOS. And have the same issue with my other focuser, a Pegasus DMFC. Shows temperature, but there's nothing I can do with it :(
Also, even though it is a snoop device for the camera, neither the temperature nor the focus position are added to the FITS header, which I think would be very nice to have (again, that's for both of them).

Please, can someone, who owns ZWO EAF, post an output of the following command?

indi_getprop

In addition, I would be very grateful, if someone would confirm, if the ZWO EAF configuration in the graphical indi client can enable joystick support as it is in the focuser simulator.

Thank you

Here is the relevant part, joystick enable control is there, haven't tried if it works, but it's handled by the common base class so it should.

I have a ZWO EAF with the temp sensor connected to KStars/Ekos 3.5.8 Stable running on Ubuntu 20.04 and it indeed does work. Takes some tweaking of the parameters (like everything else) to optimize the focus process for your rig. There's a spot on the Focus Module to select the source of the temperature used for re-focus on delta-temp and the current & delta reading just below the pull-down menu (see picture)
