Re-focus every delta temperature change?

Can Voyager re-focus based on delta temperature change during sequence? If so how do you do it?

Peter

Voyager have delta information on temperature (if focuser say it) but i never implemented this kind of re-focus. I can add if you need.

The advantage of having to refocus based on delta temperature change is you never know how long it takes for the target delta ambient temperature to change during the night. Ambient temperature typically changes faster at beginning of imaging session than at end of imaging session.

It’s up to you to implement this feature.

Peter

As I told you it is not a problem to do it. It is simple to add.

The important thing is not to refocus based only on temperature because the problems of focus are not just related to it.

Thank you. It’s good to offer multiple choices for triggering to re-focus during sequence.

Peter

I agree … absolutely. Thanks for pointed it out.

You could even allow to enable delta time, temperature and number of frames at the same time to trigger auto focus whichever comes first. After each AF is performed, reset current time, temperature and frame number for next trigger of AF.

I would very much like to see delta time and temperature focus triggers.

I think to release a daily build for this we.
