Hi.

I think to correctly register my calibration code in the file focus.txt.  How can I note if somethings go wrong? What happen if my code wasn' t correct? 

If the entered calibration code is incorrect, the calibration circle will deviate from the center, which can clearly be seen

It is normal to offset a few pixels. For the same OCAL, the errors of different telescopes will be different, and mechanical errors are inevitable.
