i found that increasing the steps made a huge difference when i was in a similar position; i presume you have tried the formula in the manual where you defocus to 3-4x the best hfr?

Have a read of - http://mainsequencesoftware.com/Content/SGPHelp/SequenceGeneratorPro.html?UnderstandingAutoFocus.html

Unless you are lucky and someone has the same kit, it really is a case of trial and error. I have a Lakeside focuser where the step size is just 24 and a SharpSky that is 150. Both give perfect V curves on decent seeing but wander around a bit when seeing is poor.
