We'll confirm Saturday night (my next observing night). I had everything sprawled out in the family room tonight, trying to sort out the problem I experienced observing last night. I could run the Celestron Focus motor on my RASA 8 if I used the Celestron focus utility with it directly - but SharpCap refused to "see" it. Tonight, all I did was switch up the loading order. When I powered on the gear, I opened SharpCap, used the menu to power up the Camera, then Went to SharpCap's "Preferences" menu, under hardware, and chose Celestron Focus Motor then hit "apply." Nothing happened. Hit the configure button on that same ShapCap hardward dialogue and it automatically launched the Celestron focus utility screen, prompting me to "Connect" then "Calibrate." Once it calibrated, I "OK'd" the Celestron menu, and THEN (and only then) did SharpCap "see" that my focuser was 'live.' Seems like, sequence-wise, it makes all the difference in the world if SharpCap is the prompt to launch Celestron's utility. Launching the utility first, apart from SharpCap did allow the utility to manually focus, but left out SharpCap. I'll confirm this Saturday night. Just sharing this in case someone else has had a problem like this..
