help with maxim dl & autofocus

Hello, just tried to use maxim to autofocus, had a V curve but it said failed due to too many steps. What do I adjust > ? have tried step size from 100 down to 10, still failed. Am using TCF-S focuser.

I don't think many people use Maxim autofocus. I played around with it a little but ended up happier with FocusMax.

Cheers,
Rick.

Maxim Dl and autofocus

Will do thanks
have another issue now anyway-after I updated the focuser driver I think from 5.16 to 5.19 I cannot get Maxim to recognise it.
Just updated ASCOM to the latest platform so will try that.
If I can't get that to work may have to try focusmax!
