Autofocus software

Hi all
looking for autofocus software that will monitor my imaging thought the night , stop sequence, re focus the continue imaging all without me being involved.
Just can't afford MaximDLbut can afford ImagesPlus.
I am using a Moonlite focuser with High Res stepper motor.

Regards
Carl

FocusMax is free and will automate focus - but if you want something that will monitor the focus qulaity in your image sequence and step in / stop the sequence / refocus / restart you are going to need to spend some $$$. I think FWHM monitor part of CCDInspector from CCDWare will do some of what what you want but you will probably need CCDAutopilot to fully automate.

Should have picked that up from the IP reference, so perhaps have a look at AstroArt does not cost too much - that supports DSLRs and Austofocus - and is scriptable.
