reverse direction back to normal when connecting to Ekos #47685
Hi everyone,

I've built this amazing focuser but it won't stay in reverse direction once connected to Ekos through Kstars.

The configuration with Windows app is ok, when I disconnect and I reconnect the focuser to the Windows app, the reverse checkbox stay checked. The fact to connect the focuser to Ekos turns back the reverse mode to normal. (disconnection from Ekos and connection to Windows config app lets appear the reverse checkbox unchecked.

My actual firmware is: myFP2_DRV8825HW203_293
I've also tried with previous firmwares but without but results.

Any ideas ? Do I need to reverse motor wires ?

Thanks a lot for any help and many thanks for your work and your time spent around this project

Hello. I see you are new here. Chances are it's as simple as this. You simply have to save the driver configuration in the INDI control panel.
BTW. Do feel free to share details on how focuser build. :)

Hi, sorry for my late reply. Saving the driver (MyFocuserPro2) configuration did not worked, the reverse direction setting is inside the focuser.
I fixed this issue by switching wires of the stepper motor and everything works fine now.
I had to reverse direction because I have a 3:1 ratio belt drive:
