Re: Autofocus seems suspect

I went through the procedure you wrote and the numbers were very close to what I had after doing the V-curve. The only thing that I thought was maybe an issue was using 10-15 times the final step value for the initial step. It puts the focus quite far out initially, and my first try last night faile...

Did you follow the procedure?

Re: Autofocus seems suspect

Let is start with the things one by one: 1. focusing: I would say it performed quite well and 100% as expected. But we really need to write some documentation for it :roll: It failed because the initial stellar image was quite out of focus and bigger than the box size, in this case FWHM is 2x radiu...

Re: Autofocus seems suspect

Success!

But I need to create a deb package to copy to my indigosky pi. Seems I need a DEBIAN/control file, which I can't find.
