Hi Everyone

 

Hope this is the right forum for this.

 

I have a Celestron Focus Motor.

 

I have gone through the calibration process (I am using CWPI).

 

This might be a silly question, but do I have to calibrate it every time I use it? Only each time I open CWPI and go to focus motor, it has the calibrate option?

 

Thanks

 

Carl

On most systems calibration is a one time operation unless something changed which you manually did. That button should be able to be ignored until you need to re-calibrate as the settings should get saved after your successful (or not) calibration. Are you sure you have saved the calibration settings after I presume the wizard completed?
