Focus Cube Zero on Edge HD8

Post by munkster »

Hi all - I am having trouble with the FCZ on the Edge HD8 - in short I can focus fine with it, but then when I try to Autofocus with NINA (which I have used a fair bit but with a ZWO EAF on another scope) it frequently fails. I seem to need to have a step size of 10 or 15 in order for it to still be sufficiently in focus for NINA to register an HFR to do the AF routine. It only takes about 50 or 60 steps/increments for the image to be totally out of focus, which seems incredibly sensitive. I was in the process of thinking of just swapping it out for a ZWO EAF but then it occurred to me that I should check the settings behind the scenes because I bought it secondhand - below is the set up page in the Unity platform, how does this look? OK? Is there anything glaring in there that might lead it to be hard to use?? I am obviously aware of phenomena like mirror flop, but I'm trying to rule one thing out at a time...

Thanks!!
