Seem like with my setup i have to run autofocus for each NB filter. Tried multiple strategies (full field/ donut/ subframe)(exposure times) but too often, with autofocus failing often after 20+ minutes, the scheduler aborts...

I would think a slew to a designated bright star would allow for much shorter exposure, and get more reliable results...

Would be interested in your thoughts/ strategy

Thanks,
Mike

I appreciate that, but my hardware is unchanged, and for the last year, during many nights, probably thousands of downloads, i had 7.5sec /32MB... I suspected VNC, does this not add another trip to the data?

Thank you

First: Hats off to Kaczorek, ASTROBERRY is awesome and has served me very well over the last 24 month. Thanks Kacz!

recently updated from v1.1.0 to v2.0.2.

after the usual upgrade-hiccups I was able to connect, but downloads for my FITS - which I store on my desktop - have slowed down quite a bit: was 7ish seconds, now highly variable between 18 and 34sec

not too big a deal, but if there is an easy fix I would like to learn about it...

Thanks!

Michael created a new topic ' Linear focus module..' in the forum. 6 months ago

KStars on my Mac, Astroberry talking to home brew Myfocuserpro2, using the linear algorithm; works mostly GREAT

Occasionally focus fails and aborts the session, typically wildly out of focus. If running from the scheduler the session immediately restarts, and attempts focus again but now from an already bad starting point. In linear focus mode the starting point is initially moved out even more, making recovery virtually impossible.

For example:last night initial focus was around 9600, KStars finally crashed with a focused position of 12600, a typical scenario (I believe the focus module might be crashing KStars??)

If the focuser would return after a failed routine to a “last known good” position, this might be avoided...

Thanks

Than gents, would you think this Is a RBP4 specific issue or do other USB3-SBC have the same potential problem?

Appreciate it!

Good evening
I am about to put me RBPi3 out to pasture... no updates here recently. So has this issue been positively resolved?

Thanks
