Strange focus behavior (ASCOM)

Post by cwoodhou »

I have noticed two strange behaviors using SGP with UPBV2. All latest software (July 21), Windows 10 and ASCOM 6.5 SP1.

In SGP, if I press step out or in a few times consecutively, without waiting for the motor to stop, the motor keeps going... and I have to press stop to prevent it running in or out the whole way. Is that normal behavior?

The other thing I noticed was that I realized I had fitted the focus motor on the other side of the telescope and I needed to reverse the direction. I enabled reverse in SGP and when I made a move, the position changed from 4000 something to 99999 something. Not entirely sure if this SGP or UPB2. I will try it with another focuser. Has anyone else seen this?

My bad - it was normal behavior in SGP to flip the position around and with extensive testing, I realized that SGP/UPB were just storing my mouse clicks and executing the focus jumps one after another.
