Focus position at atart up #44162
Hello.

My setup is Stellarmate with a Raspberry pi 3b+.
I work with an Optec TCF LS focuser and i choose Focus Lynx in Ekos.
It works pretty well but i have a request.
It is an absolute focuser and has a temperature sensor so in the options i wrote down the coeficient for temperature change, 55 steps per degree in my case.
What i would like is that at connection, the focuser would be automatically sent to a position based in the current temperature and the last succesful autofocus.
I know that this position will not be very accurate, but would be a good start position for the first autofocus of the following night´s sesión.

Thanks.

So you can save Presets (Presets tab) in the INDI control panel and simply click go to there and the focuser would go there. It's not fully automatic but at least you don't have the remember the focus position.

I have the same "problem". I have the preset Tab for different focus.
I wish, if possible to have it on the scheduler :at start up and shutdown.
i think it s possible with scripts on scheduler but i dont' know how i do this...:blush: . (command line for focus in/out with pitch value)
