all good ideas and I will check (again) into that full frame thing. tried already a few times, but I always lost my nerve because that process takes soooooo long...

Here is my idea:
It would be nice to have an option to restrict the search area for "autoselect star" to a smaller window which could "flip" with the meridian flip, that one can stay away from a galaxy. And also stay away from the very corners of the image, where the field flatteners have their problems. This is where my "autoselect" often goes....

Thanks all!

had several sessions corrupted by a failed autofocus procedure:

after meridian flip the subframe is most likely empty...
occasionally "autoselect star" chooses the center of a galaxy and is unsuccessful...


do you have any suggestions?

Well, that is probably true for the pro units, but if you have a 3D printer, and too much time on your hands?

Sooo,
Played with the driver aliases, that was definitely not a success.

However, after scanning the ports, i just disconnect box1, change to the other port, reconnect moonlite, and voila, box2 is online...

Not super elegant but it works!

Thank you guys,

OMG, will have to get into "rules file" and " DLLs ,Guid, progID, Served Class Name" and into that great customs drivers tool!
I thought I left DLLs when I fired my last Windows machine! 15 years ago....
:unsure: :ohmy:

Just reinforces the notion that we are all in a Hobby For Masochists!

my CEM60 would allows me to carry both my scopes, and I am tempted to see if EKOS will will be able to recognize and address 2 Moonlite focusers...

Did anyone try this before?

Does anybody know if this is technically possible?

Thanks
Mike
