I am using Robofocus in my sequence and drag script. I wan’t to make sure the focuser returns to correct position for plate solves on the L filter after focusing HA. My L filter is 2mm and the HA is 3mm so these are not parafocal.
Drag script goes approximate focus position for the L filter to start the night.
Drag script robofocus on L filter.
Drag tests plate solve , IF ok go to sequence 1
Drag script enters sequence 1.
Sequence 1 is set to image by filter group and use actual filters with robofocus
Right now it looks like the sequence will focus my first filter in the sequence which is HA.
After doing this it will next plate solve with L again.
Looks it is not going back to the L position achieved prior to entry into the sequence.
I had MaxIM handle the offset between filters previously. I am trying to use only Voyager and not use an additional MaxIM focuser connection.
Plate solving does not require critical focus, and 1mm filter difference will not be enough to cause failure in solving. The optical difference there is 0.3mm. While you would want perfect focus for light frames, that is not enough to cause solving to fail.
Sorry but Voyager at now doesn’t manage offset. Voyager do the focus with the filter asked and dont touch focuser until next focus or if you manually move. If you work at F3 just use HA filter for plate solve , create a profile cloning the actual and change setting to have more time and bin in plate solve setting or leave the current profile and in sequence setting choose to plate solve bypass the general setting and use actual filter.
the flag check mean to use the actual filter, if actual filter is L Voyager use L to plate solve. So if you want to be sure that use a deterministic filter just clone profile and choose a different filter for plate solving pushing on binning and time. This solve all problem.
This flag was born for photometric filters.
So i will do a change in sequence configuration , i’ll add fields to override completly the plate solve filter data.
I’ll do this today and pubblish a daily build Max.
