QHY8L & APT Focus Plans


Recommended Posts

Does anyone use APT with the QHY8L?

I'm just testing it out and was trying to set up a focus plan that would continuously capture why I try and achieve focus.

I set up a plan but when I ran it I sometimes got a gray image and sometimes got a black image like the image hadn't been downloaded. I tried setting a pause of 5s between captures but that didn't seem to help.

Has anyone set up a working focus plan and what settings did they use?

Thanks Ivo, I'll give that a try. I though it might have had something to do with APT trying to take the next capture in the sequence before the last capture had downloaded from the camera.

Is APT set-up to stop that happening? Or should I use the pause parameter to control this?
