Hi Chris,

Thanks for your feedback. I had a debugging session with Wolfgang this week. I think he understood what is going wrong. Unfortunately I can't contribute more than giving him remote access to my FOCS focuser.

Currently, only the absolute positioning of the focuser is working. But the changed focus position is not shown due to the missing update that Chris mentioned.
As a workaround, until this is fixed, you can enter manually the absolute focuser position and ignore the "0" that is shown as absolute position. The command will be send nevertheless, although the result is not visible.

I think I have a fix but I am having problems compiling now so once I get that resolved and test the fix out I will generate a PR for the indi library.

I will test and release it

I will do that. However at the moment I cant get it to build. I have tried building it solo and building all 3rd party drivers and it fails due to:
In file included from /home/canis/Code/indi/3rdparty/indi-avalon/lx200stargofocuser.h:25:0,
                 from /home/canis/Code/indi/3rdparty/indi-avalon/lx200stargofocuser.cpp:22:
/home/canis/Code/indi/3rdparty/indi-avalon/lx200stargo.h:27:34: fatal error: mount/lx200telescope.h: No such file or directory

Any ideas? I am attempting to build from the most recent master.

Yes, you need to build and install libindi to the latest version first.

But maybe you take first a look at the recent changes in branch "stargo_work" from github.com/sterne-jaeger/indi.git

I would not be surprised, if we had the same idea.

That was my idea as well. Once I get it to build I can test it out however, despite building libindi and installing I still cant build indi-avalon.

Hm, strange, the build problem. Do you have a different version installed under /usr/local?

I resolved the issue. I just deleted everything and did a clean build. Not sure what the issue was.

Anyway, position data now updates properly and both relative and absolute motions work.

Ah, great to hear. Then I will update the version and issue a PR.

I checked out sterne-jaeger's working branch a few minutes ago. It worked like a charm*. Relative movements work in both directions, the GUI updates correctly, setting absolute positions works, too. Great job!

Just one thing: The spin box in the control panel to set the relative position should allow negative values.

Great to hear. I just do the last regression tests and will issue asap version 1.1 as PR.

Regarding the negative value: this is the behavior for all INDI focusers, position "0" means that the focuser is fully drawn in.

If that is not the case, sync it to a value > 0 and recall the move.

Does that make sense for you?
