Hi all,

 

I hope this is the right place to put this query. Anyways, I have a Starizona microtouch wired focuser. I installed everything and things work very nice

with the microtouch controller software. However, when I try to control it with either APT or BYE it does something weird.

With APT or BYE and even SGP, it does not matter if I push the IN or OUT travel button it always goes IN. And I don't understand why.

 

Just to be more clear. The position counter says 30000 on all software, I push the IN or OUT buttons on APT/BYE/SGP and it always goes in one direction, which is DOWN, i.e. lower count. But when I do it with the microtouch controller software it works fine.

 

I tried hard to find posts with similar problems but no luck. Anyone has an idea? I'm quite sure it is some definition that I am missing here.

 

Thanks!
