Hi there,

this function is already available as long as your focuser has an ASCOM driver.

See http://docs.sharpcap.co.uk/2.9/#Configuring%20SharpCap and http://docs.sharpcap.co.uk/2.9/#Focuser%20Control.

cheers,

Robin

If it is one of these http://www.365astronomy.com/Hitec-DCFoc ... otors.html , you will find links to the manuals and ASCOM driver on the page. There are other types of Hitec focusers available at the site.

Cheers robin/ Dave,, still reading the manual,, just set up my hitecastro dC controller the other night and bought the pro version of sharpcap and was overlaying the focus software over sharpcap and thought it would be good to have a smaller app,, need more time to get up to speed with sharpcap,,, davy
