If using only Localfield, which means no telescope movement when focusing, can you explain why pointing after fail is a safety issue. If the telescope was not moved and has been tracking correctly then I don’t see why a Localfield focus fail requires repointing the telescope.
The reason I bring this up is because I am doing precision photometry sequences where the target must be maintained within a pixel or two during the entire run. To do this I use an ultra precision tracking program called ATrack which keeps the target within a pixel over several hours, even when a band of clouds may pass through during the run.
But when Voyager tries to repoint the telescope and fails then the target is moved sometimes 80 pixels away from where it should be. This really causes problems now for all subsequent photometry measurements. Note that if autofocus fails then a repointing will fail also because the plate solves do not work.
It is highly recommended that if the telescope is not moved during a localfield autofocus that a repoint is not done if the focus fails. Maybe this needs to be a checkbox in the sequence focus tab and let the user be responsible for any safety issues after a fail.
